La Solitaire Afflelou Le Figaro


SAM DAVIES & SKANDIA FIGARO TAKE ON LA SOLITAIRE AFFLELOU LE FIGARO

In less than 3 weeks, Sam Davies and SKANDIA will be on the start line of the main event of the Figaro season ‘La Solitaire Afflelou Le Figaro’ starting 7th August: the four stage, sleep deprived 1710mile solo race between France, Spain and Ireland, widely thought of as ‘the unofficial world championship of single-handed offshore racing’ attracts the very best Figaro soloists and legends of the sport including 2001 Vendée Globe winner Michel Desjoyeaux.

“I know how hard it is because I have done it twice before…that is good and bad! This is the best race I have ever sailed, and the most competitive. It’s a buzz I cannot explain, and only fellow skippers who have done the race can understand. It is an addiction!”
Sam Davies, skipper SKANDIA
