About the Transat:
The very first Transat Québec Saint-Malo set sail in 1984 to mark the 450th anniversary of explorer Jacques Cartier’s first voyage from Saint-Malo to the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 1534.
Every four years since then, the Transat has brought together the best professional monohull and multihull ocean racers around for an epic Atlantic crossing from Quebec City to Saint-Malo.
One of the classic offshore yacht races, the Transat Québec Saint-Malo is the only continuous west-to-east offshore crewed race in the world.
