How to follow finishes

Before crossing the finish line which lies about 350 metres off the Point de la Verdure (By Gosier) competitors have to round the island to port (leaving it on their left side) and then leave the Basse-Terre buoy to starboard. From that mark it is 24 miles to the finish.


To follow progress on this site the tracker is updated every six minutes once the boats are within 20 miles of la Tete a l'Anglais (the N Point of Basse Terre). This is for all the competitors. Thereafter the press conference (in French) will be streamed live as will the key finishes.

There is a prize from the CCI Guadeloupe which is awarded for the best time in each class between the Basse Terre mark and the finish.
