« Brittany, nautical land has always at heart to welcome new races on its coasts and I am glad that the second edition of the Pro Sailing Tour roots this summer in 3 of our harbors. I am more than happy that the stops and regattas remain several days in Brest, Saint Brieuc and Roscoff leaving time to the audience to walk on pontoons and seaside, to discover the places to see the boats and to meet the skippers. »

Loïg Chesnais-Girard,
Président de la Région Bretagne

With 1400 km of coasts the « Finistère »is the quintessential nautical land. Our territory is full of emblematic locations and innovative equipment helping the sailing lovers to live and flourish.
Starting in Bonifacio the Pro Sailing tour will end in the « Finistère » and will highlight two of our most beautiful locations the harbor of Brest and the bay of Morlaix thanks to a marvelous challenge and a TV series broadcasted worldwide.

Leisure for some or job for others, sailing is a high level discipline strongly supported by the « conseil départemental » because of its values of excellence and innovation shared by the territory itself. »
