In three stages, on an essentially offshore course from Caen to Piriac-sur-mer via Kinsale in Ireland and Roscoff, the event will offer 1,850 miles of racing to the 33 solo sailors entered. Kick-off on August 27th for three weeks of a thrilling soap opera in the Channel, the Celtic Sea and the Atlantic where Basile Bourgnon on the Figaro Edenred hopes to play the leading roles.

Basile Bourgnon won the second stage of La Solitaire du Figaro Paprec between Kinsale and Roscoff this Thursday, September 7th. He is now first in the general ranking. The third stage started on Sunday, September 10th with an estimated arrival in Piriac-sur-Mer on September 13th or 14th.
