The first offshore race of the domestic season finishes in the second busiest port in France, Le Havre. Depending on the weather conditions, the race may include various marks along the way. It always provides a good shakedown, and sets you up well for the season. Overlooking the finish line, the Société des Régates du Havre hosts the finish with great food and a warm welcome.

Weather and tide dependent, we may drop into Le Havre for some R&R before the delivery cruise back to Hamble.
