28 crews, gathering amateurs and professionals, will take part in the Tour de France à la Voile which sees in 2015 the introduction of a new boat : the Diam 24, a spectacular one-design 7.25 meter trimaran. The race will stop off in 9 cities, from Dunkirk on July 3rd to Nice on July 26th.

The crews will accumulate totally 20 days of navigation along the French coasts, offering the public the opportunity to follow closely the race from the beaches and enjoy the entertainment in the race village.
