The Solitaire du Figaro is a tough demanding race that sees the who's who of single handed offshore sailing compete alongside some highly experienced sailors and rookies in a month long race of  four legs that covers around 2000 Miles at sea, each leg usually being of four days duration and sailed around the busy coastal waters of the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay and the Western Approaches. The navigation, tides and weather aspects make the race particularly challenging for the sleep deprived single handed sailors who are racing boat on boat against 40 fellow competitors.

 

There have been 4 people that have won the Figaro 3 times throughout its history each having campaigned for over 15 years. Philippe Poupon 1982, 1985, 1995. Michel Desjoyeaux 1992, 1998, 2007 Jérémie Beyou 2005, 2011, 2014 Yann Eliès 2012, 2013, 2015 these are just some of the legends that have come out of the Figaro.
