Skippered by some of the biggest names in world sailing the race takes the two-man crews from the French west coast to Brazil, then down to Cape Town and back up to the finish in Brest.

Aloha Classic
The PWA crown their new World Champions in the Wave discipline in Maui. Will 2019 see the end of a 20 year dominance by the Moreno twin sisters?

Transat Jacques Vabre
59 boats lined up for the start of the 14th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre, the longest and toughest double-handed transatlantic race. Three classes skippered by some of the world's top oceanic sailors lined up at the start in le Havre, France.For many in the IMOCA class it's a vital stepping stone on the campaign for the 2020 Vendee Globe.

A new type of windsurf will be used at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The iFoil has been announced as the new class that will be contested in Marseilles, the sailing venue for Paris 2024.

Francis Joyon & IDEC Sport
