Set sail with us on November 6, 2022: heading for Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe!
For the first time in its history, boat shoe brand Christophe Auguin is taking part in the Route du Rhum, alongside skipper Morgane Ursault Poupon. It is with great pride that we take part in this extraordinary adventure by supporting one of the 7 women at the start of the race.
The Route du Rhum: the Transat of Freedom
Created in 1978 by Michel Etevenon, the Route du Rhum - Destination Guadeloupe has established itself over the years as the queen of single-handed transatlantic race. For 44 years, sailors from all walks of life have been meeting every 4 years at the start of this incredible transatlantic race which connects Saint-Malo in Brittany to Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe over nearly 3,542 miles (6,562 kilometers!)
Legendary thanks to its diversity and its mix of genres, the Route du Rhum brings together professional skippers and amateur faces for a mythical face-to-face with the ocean.
