The 2020 Vendée Globe is on course to be an exceptional edition

The official press conference for the ninth edition of the Vendée Globe was held on Thursday, September 17 at the Palais Brongniart in Paris. The event mustered as many sailors, partners, organisers and journalists as was safely possible. It is an important milestone 52 days before the start of the non-stop, unassisted solo round-the-world race which is shaping up to be an exceptional event in every area.
