The Race 05/02/2018


Between its start and finish, that will take place in the Baie des Anges, just in front of the mythical Promenade des Anglais, the race boasts a sublime route that will take in some of the most iconic Mediterranean coasts. Corsica, Sardinia, the Balearic Islands and the coastline of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region will provide, alongside the Baie des Anges, a majestic setting for this major first in the Mediterranean.

On Wednesday 2nd May at 13.02, the Ultims will set off for 2 laps of a majestic circuit that promises to feature an intense struggle and close contact between the boats over 3 days. A specific feature of Nice UltiMed is the compulsory way points that will oblige these seafaring giants to steer around markers very near to the coasts. The 2nd lap can be shortened at one of these way points to ensure the race finishes on the afternoon of Saturday 5th May.
