'The 2013 edition is dynamic and innovative. Itajaí, in Brazil, shows just how open we have been over the course of these 20 years.'

M. Jandi Bellini, the Mayor of Itajaí, is pleased that the town will be part of the Transat Jacques Vabre and of the association with the French town of Le Havre, which will further strengthen strong nautical links already established.

This further contributes to strengthening the nautical ambitions for our city' reaffirms Jandir Bellini. He also emphasised that the municipality would working to provide the best for the skippers and that the population of Itajaí. 'The region will welcome them with open arms,' he added.

With this new destination, participants will race to a great coffee-producing country, confirming the tradition of this event founded by Jacques Vabre and the town of Le Havre 20 years ago. This year, as in 2007, sustainable development is at the heart of the organisation's concerns, echoing Jacques Vabre’s environmental commitment for whom 'each coffee is a world to discover' explained Clotilde Bednarek, Marketing Director Coffee - Mondelèz International.

The people from Le Havre especially hold this race close to their hearts and there is more and more support for the event from the public. In 2011, we welcomed 300,000 visitors to the village and in 2013, we will make every effort to ensure that the 20th anniversary of the Transat Jacques Vabre will be unforgettable for everyone,', said Philippe Edouard, Mayor of Le Havre and deputy for Seine-Maritime.
