Seemed to have the world regatta, which – unlike all others – do not plan to postpone or cancel. Talking about the famous round-the-world race singles Vendee Globe, the launch of which is scheduled for November 8.
But the situation with the pandemic, by and large, the better it becomes, and therefore the organizers of the Vendee Globe in any doubt that the start of this voyage will be able to hold at the appointed time. This is due, firstly, to the fact that quarantine and other tough measures against COVID-19 significantly complicated the training of future members for the race, and secondly, because, according to tradition, the ceremony of the start in Les Sables d’olonne attracts hundreds of thousands of fans, and in the current environment it is absolutely unreal.
As the head of the organizing Committee of the race Yves Ovine in an interview with France 3, he and his colleagues closely monitored the evolving situation. The final decision will be the start of the Vendee Globe in scheduled time or it will have to be postponed to be held in district on June 15.aboutdoubtglobelaunchvendee
