The Cap Martinique: the meeting place for sailing enthusiasts

The Epic Course

The Cap-Martinique is a transatlantic sailing race. It's a daring adventure that embodies the spirit of exploration, challenge and freedom on the high seas. 

The competition begins on April 14, 2024 in Trinité-sur-mer, on the island of Porto Santo in Portugal. It ends in Fort-de-France in Martinique, also known as "Flower Island". It crosses the Atlantic over a distance of some 3,800 nautical miles (around 7,000 kilometers).

Sailors have to cope with changing weather conditions. They also face strong winds, violent waves and difficult navigational challenges during their journey. The challenge is considerable, as the race is run in a single leg.

A diverse fleet

The diversity of the yachts entered in the Cap-Martinique is one of the most striking features of the race. Each boat must represent a sustainable or social cause to be more visible.

The Spirit of Competition

The Cap-Martinique is a solo and crewed race. It's a demanding challenge, both physically and mentally. Sailors have to cope with isolation, sleep deprivation and unpredictable sea conditions as they sail across the ocean.

The Cap-Martinique is a celebration of human daring, passion for the sea and the quest for the unknown. It's an adventure that tests the limits of sailors and inspires those who dream of challenging the ocean.

The Cap-Martinique is a captivating maritime experience. Whether you love sailing or admire the courage of sailors, you can discover and celebrate it. It's a reminder that, in the world of ocean sailing, the impossible can become reality with every gust of wind.
