Foot impression of Michael Birch, first winner of the Route du Rhum race

The Route du Rhum is a transatlantic single-handed yacht race, which takes place every four years in November. The course is between Saint Malo, Brittany, France and Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe. The first competition, won by Canadian Michael Birch in his boat Olympus Photo by a margin of 98 seconds over second-placed Michel Malinovsky in Kriter V was held in 1978, and was marked in tragedy by the disappearance of Alain Colas during the crossing.

Current record is 7d 14h 21m 47s, set on November 11, 2018 by Francis Joyon.

The 2006 race began on 29 October 2006, with a maximum of 60 boats competing in 4 categories:
