The start of the 51st edition of the Solitaire du Figaro will take place in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc on 30 August 2020.

After a highly successful stopover in 2018 and the Tour de Bretagne à la Voile in 2019, Saint-Brieuc Armor Agglomération and its partners have decided to pass an important milestone in 2020. Indeed, the race will set sail from the Côtes d’Armor department of northern Brittany next year. This decision has been made within the context of Ambition Nautique, a programme promoting sailing in the region, which notably includes the Optimist International Cup, the Trophée des Multicoques (Multihull Trophy) and the Figaros. In this way, the presence of the Figaro Beneteau 3s competing in the legendary Solitaire du Figaro will be eagerly awaited once again at Saint-Quay-Portrieux in late August.

As announced by OC Sport Pen Duick during the special soirée to wrap up the 50th edition of the event, the race dates are changing from 2020 in line with the season’s event schedule. As such, the Solitaire du Figaro will now be held in August and September. In 2020, the date was revealed and the start of this latest edition will take place on Sunday 30 August 2020. The village, set up at Saint-Quay-Portrieux, will be open to the public from 26 to 30 August.
