In the Route des Princes, the arrival in Plymouth on Wednesday of the fleet of grand Prix multihulls, which features top sailors from seven different nations racing around Europe, marks the start of the Ocean City’s Festival of Sail.

The eight multihulls, four Multi50 trimarans, three 70 foot MOD70 trimarans and the show stopping 80 foot trimaran Prince de Bretagne, arrived from Dun Laoghaire, Dublin Bay during Wednesday afternoon and evening, and will start their final leg to Morlaix, France on Saturday evening. The course has taken the crews from Valencia in Spain to Lisbon, Portugal and Dun Laoghaire Ireland before arriving in Plymouth.

During Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and early afternoon, the multihulls will compete over short courses off Plymouth Hoe when the final inshore race points will be available. With the top two teams in the MOD70 class, Oman Air-Musandam and Edmond de Rothschild locked together with the same points aggregate going into the inshore race series, the short, sharp courses can be decisive. These contests are raced close to shore so spectators can enjoy the spectacle with live commentary.

A prizegiving on Friday evening on Plymouth Hoe will see Lord Mayor Vivien Pengelly present the prizes for the Dublin to Plymouth leg between 8pm and 8.15pm.

As with other stopovers on the Route des Princes Plymouth welcomes visitors to enjoy a comprehensive shoreside festival, which will highlight local produce, and there will be live music and entertainment for all ages. Chef demonstrations kick off the days, there is stand up paddleboarding, live music for all ages and a great range of produce.
