EVENT PRESENTATION

Four weeks of intense racing along the French coasts
It is a tradition: for 32 years, in June and July, the Tour de France à la Voile lasts nearly four weeks.
From the Channel to the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, around 30 races can be run.
Both triangle races and offshore races are mixed for a unique event, which now is a benchmark in
terms of ocean team sailing.
A great sailing and racing school, the race attracted more than 20,000 crews since its creation by
Bernard Decré in 1978.
Since 2004, the Tour de France à la Voile is the main event of the France Team Sailing
Championship, thanks to the French Sailing Federation (FFV) and the FARR 30 Owners Association
(ACPM).

One same boat for all
Since 1999, the race’s one-design class is the FARR 30, a boat designed by Bruce Farr.
From 2011 on, a new one-design class will succeed to the FARR 30: the M34. It won a design
competition of 23 international projects. Built by the Archambault boatyard, its selection results from a
common reflexion between the race’s organisation and the sailors.

An international sport benchmark
America’s Cup specialists, Olympic sailors, match-racing competitors, professional skippers and
crews take part in such a high-level event. The Tour de France à la Voile also welcomes sailors from
all around the world: U.S., Italy, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada, New Zealand, …
Over the years, the Tour de France à la Voile has established itself as an open competition for both
present and future champions! There are therefore three different rankings. The General ranking is
open to professional sailors. Competitors with no ISAF-professional status can run for the Amateur
ranking, while the Student ranking is open to schools and universities.

A popular event
Each port of call is an occasion for the city to organize a great popular celebration. The race village
covers thousands of square meters, including spaces for reception and spaces for the sponsors,
organization and competitor’s promotion. Depending on the years, the Tour de France à la Voile
follows a different route with ten to twelve stopovers. A good opportunity for the race village, its
games and its concerts, to welcome up to 20,000 people. For two or three days per city – more for the
towns welcoming the departure and the arrival of the race –, day and night performances give rhythm
to the race. Inshore races are organized close to the ports for the public to enjoy the show.

A media moment
Media sponsorships are reinforced thanks to a close work with the press. As a result, the event
benefits from international media coverage and is one of the key sport events of the summer. Several
TV teams and press correspondents follow the entire race, increasing its impact and promoting the
Tour de France à la Voile’s sponsors, whether there are companies or local authorities.

A marketing and communication tool
The event offers companies and local authorities a useful communication tool; the media presence
makes them more notable while the race village allows them to display their products. Reception
spaces also offer clients or staff a relaxed and attractive place. These different elements make this
race one of the best communication tools of the summer, when the French coasts are more crowded
than ever.

1. RACE RULES

       1.1 A ONE-DESIGN RACE IN FARR 30

From the starting day, the FARR 30 must follow the class rules as determined by the French FARR
30 Owners Association (ACPM). It must also follow the race’s requirements to be found in the Notice
of Race (number of crews, sails, safety material, etc.). The eligibility rules (group 1 limitations or
owners' helmsmen), which are specific to the FARR 30 international circuit, do not apply to the 2010
Tour de France à la Voile.

Competitors must provide a 2010 measurement certificate when registering or during the Tour de
France à la Voile's controls at the latest. Each skipper must be an ACPM member. In case foreign
skippers are already paying contribution to the FARR 30's association in their home country, they will
only pay 1 Euro to the ACPM when confirming their registration.

Measurement controls and start controls
Each boat will be checked before the race start. Measurement controls will also take place throughout
the race by an official measurer. For measurement controls, registration confirmations and sails
marking, the complete boat (with its sails and equipment) must be available for the organization to
check it three to four days before the start of the race. The exact date will be given in the Notice of
Race. At least two members of the sailing or technical team must be present.
If a boat is late for the measurement controls, does not tell the organization by post, mail or fax about
it and does not provide a valid explanation for that, the team will loose points without instruction (see
the Notice of Race), except if there previously was a written explanation from the Race Director.

Equipment and electronics
As explained in the class rules, the boat must have a 25 Watts / 56 Channel VHF complying with its
country's legislation. An antenna (3 db minimum) must be located in the masthead. Aboard, there
must also be a spare antenna and a waterproof portable VHF (5 Watts) in working order.

The functioning of the VHF (transmission/reception) will be verified by an organization's technical
expert before the start and, if necessary, during the race.

Any boat, whose equipment would not meet the full electrical controls (VHF, batteries,
charging system) will have to be modified to comply with the rules before the start of the race
to carry on racing.

The organization strongly recommends the competitors to ask an expert to verify their
electrical systems (VHF, batteries, charging system) before the measurement controls.

Any ASF VHF must have a MMSI number. If possible, it should also be coupled with the boat
GPS. These data must be given when confirming the registration.

The boat's engine must be operational and has to be so throughout the race. Because the engine
power is rather low and because of its impact on safety, boats must be equipped with a "Flex-O-Fold"
propeller.

Warning: a handle to start the engine by hand is now compulsory on board. It must suit the
engine.

The boats must have at least one set of navigation lights (two-coloured in the masthead are
compulsory, tri-colour lights are recommended), plus spare bulbs (except for LED if it complies with
RIPAM). These navigation lights must have a theoretical power of 10 Watts (red and green lights to
see from 1 mile, and white lights to see from 2 miles).
The boats must also be equipped with spare navigation lights according to the same rules than
abovementioned, with independent sources of energy and wiring.
The following equipment is not allowed: radar, autopilot.

For safety reasons, a mobile phone will be located in a waterproof, opaque and sealed packaging.
Each boat must give the phone number when confirming its registration (one single number will be
allowed per boat throughout the race).

The organization is allowed to require supplementary equipment to be fitted so as to improve the race
media coverage and tracking.

Sails
During the race, the competitors must use only one sail package, according to the class rules.
Only two spinnakers are allowed:




                                                                                                       5
      - One symmetrical spinnaker to be supplied by the Tour de France à la Voile
      - One fractional symmetrical spinnaker, white and without marking, to be supplied by the
competitors themselves.

At the end of all legs, the boats, which are leading their rankings (General, Amateur, Student), are
obliged to have the specific ranking leaders' spinnakers.

Safety
The boats must comply with the safety rules to be found in the Notice of Race (equipment and teams’
formation). The boats must comply with the “Offshore” category (“Hauturière”: over 6 miles).
The life-raft booklet must be shown when confirming the registration at the latest.

REMEMBER: ISO life rafts need to be surveyed from time to time and there is a use-by date
specified by the manufacturer. Such products are key safety equipment and must be surveyed
by a certified organization.

All safety equipment must be aboard and must stay there throughout the race. Foreign boats must be
equipped with the safety equipment to be found in the Notice of Race (appendix).

Each boat must subscribe at least one public liability and damages insurance for the entire Tour de
France à la Voile. A copy of the boat's insurance certificate valid for the entirety of the Tour de France
à la Voile must be given when confirming the registration.

Road transportations
All road transportation before, during and after the event is exclusively the teams’ responsibility. The
teams must respect the current rules for special load.
The teams must show to the organization all required transport authorizations and all official
documents (car registration document, driving licences and insurances) when confirming the
registration.


       1.2 THE TEAM

According to the FARR 30 class rules, the team’s total weight is 525 kg.

The minimum number of crews per boat is 5. The maximum is 8. The crews’ number can change from
one race to another.

A minimum of 12 crewmembers per team is allowed throughout the Tour de France à la Voile. Each
must take part in at least 3 races (except the introduction and conclusion races) to be considered as a
team member.
Unless a special authorization from the jury or the race committee, a team cannot boat during the
series.

NEW: Throughout the entire Tour de France à la Voile, at least one member per sailing team
must have attended an ISAF survival course.
The list of the team's members with the ISAF training certificate must be shown when
confirming the registration.
A      list  of     certified    ISAF     training   centres    can     be     found  here:
http://www.ffvoile.net/ffv/web/services/securite/documents/centres_habilites.pdf

Each crewmember, who is a French resident, must have a 2010 Club FFVoile licence. A doctor must
sign it. If not, the licence must come along with a medical certificate stating there is no
contraindication for sailing races.




                                                                                                        6
For foreign crewmembers, there are three possibilities:
- Either they hold membership to an ISAF National Authority, have a valid public liability insurance for
a minimum of 1,5 million Euros and have a medical certificate within two years (written in French or in
English).
- Or they hold membership to an ISAF National Authority, have a valid medial certificate (written in
French or in English) and subscribe a complementary public liability insurance provided by the
FFVoile when confirming the registration. Such insurance is valid throughout the race only and costs
around 7 Euros.
- Or, in the case of a foreign crewmember, who does not hold membership to an ISAF National
Authority, he/she must subscribe to a 2010 FFVoile licence with a medical certificate (written in
French or in English).
These documents must be shown 1) when confirming the registration and 2) during the race to the
race's organization.

The competitors must be at least 16 years old from January 1, 2010. Crews under 18 years old must
have a parental authorization indicating a tutor above 18 years old present throughout the race.

Each sailing team must include a least one person above 21 years old.

Guest crew:
During the 2010 Tour de France à la Voile, a team can take a guest aboard for two inshore races
maximum (a public figure, a journalist, a cameraman or a sponsor, etc.). This guest will not be
included in the weight limit but must show a FFVoile licence and a medical certificate to the race's
organization before the start.
In any case, the sailing team must not include more than 8 persons (7 crews + one guest).
For a guest coming for the introduction and/or conclusion races, a daily licence and a medical
certificate stating there is no contraindication for sailing races will be enough.

Moreover, the organization can ask each boat once to take a guest aboard, whatever the race is
(inshore or offshore). He/she will not be included in the weight limit (a public figure, a journalist, a
cameraman or a sponsor, etc.).


       1.3 THE 3 RANKINGS OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE À LA VOILE

General ranking
The winner of this ranking will be the 2010 Tour de France à la Voile winner.
The boats taking part in this ranking will not appear in the Amateur or Student rankings.
The skipper must give the list of each member sailing throughout the Tour de France à la Voile when
confirming the registration at the latest.

Amateur ranking
The Amateur ranking is established from the General ranking by an extraction of points.
To apply to the Amateur ranking, all the crews must belong to the ISAF group 1, except from one
member from the group 2 or 3. The skipper must give the list of each member sailing throughout the
Tour de France à la Voile, plus their ISAF group, before May 1, 2010. After this date, the requests for
an Amateur ranking registration will not be taken into account and the boat will be registered in the
General ranking.

A boat registered as an Amateur, who would not respect the above-mentioned ISAF classification
during the race, can be excluded from the Amateur ranking and ranked in the General ranking.




                                                                                                      7
WARNING: Because of the necessary delay for an ISAF classification, each crew must work
his/her classification out early enough to show it to the Tour de France à la Voile before May 1,
2010.

the 2010 skipper, must be included on this "project" in 2011.


       1.5 THE RACE'S SUPPORT

Technical support
Each team must organize its own technical support for the maintenance and the repairs of the boat
during the race.
After the first measurement controls, no technical work is allowed on the boat apart from the daily
maintenance. If a specific intervention is required, the race committee must write down an
authorization first.

Support village
As far as the life on the land is concerned, each boat must be independent (accommodation, food,
transportation etc.) but facilities are available for free at the support village.
At each port of call, the support village is a zone proposed by the organization for all the teams and
the support vehicles to live and park. All the teams meet there to eat and sleep if necessary (tents,
mobile homes). In collaboration with the ports of call, the support village offers water, electricity,
showers and toilets.




                                                                                                    8
The floor area of each "Race Support" area (canopies, tables etc.) must not exceed 70 m2.
The support village is a key place for the atmosphere of the race: it is of main importance for each
team to stay there.
The organization places a team on the support village. Its manager is present on the village 24/24,
7/7.
The teams must follow the village's rules and the directions of the manager, especially in terms of
safety, parking spaces and cleanliness.

Person in charge of the support
Each team must name one person in charge of its support team for the organization to speak with
him/her directly.

(mobile) phone number of the person to call in case of emergency.
The person in charge of the support team is constantly in contact with the village manager, who
coordinates vehicles and installations in each port of call.

IMPORTANT: The organization of the Tour de France à la Voile remind the competitors that
any violation of the behaviour rules by a member of the sailing or technical team (technical

       3.1 MEDIA

So as to write the event official program, each team must send the following document to the
organization as soon as possible and before May 1, 2010:
- The boat name and its sponsor' names
- The resumes of the skipper and tactician (job, age, nautical honours list or resume)
- The list of the sailing team, with the crews' resumes if necessary (detailed resume for the Amateur
ranking)
- The guest crews' list
- A numeric and colour picture of the skipper and/or the team when sailing together
- A picture of the hull markings
- A A4 one-side PDF (with the final font and presentation) to explain the project: objectives, ambitions
for the race, sponsors' presentation, project "concept", etc
This last point is really important for the media coverage of the projects. If these documents are not
sent on time, the publication in the official program cannot be guaranteed.

Images rights
As far as the event promotion is concerned, the organization asks all the team members (sailing,
technical and support) to fill the form allowing the Tour de France à la Voile to use their image and the
image of the boat for advertising and promoting purposes. Once filled and signed by every member,
this form must be given when confirming the registration.
                                                                                                      11
       3.2 PUBLIC RELATION OPERATIONS

Public relation operations during the event
All along the race, the Tour de France à la Voile organizes public relation operations in the ports of
call (cocktails, seeing, lunches, dinners etc). Such services are possible for groups above 20 people.
Requests must be made before May 1, 2010.

Any PR operation independent from the organization must be decided in association with the
organization for the technical and financial aspects to be under control.


       3.3 SPONSORS' SPACES ON THE ANIMATION VILLAGE

In the official village (jury, press, race committee, etc), the Animation Village is open to the public.
Located in the city centre, next to the ports, it relays the race on the land (commentator, sound
system, interviews after the regattas, animation, teams' presentation, etc).
A great place for advertising and sales, the commercial sponsors of the organization have got stands
there to display their products and services. The teams' sponsors can also enjoy such spaces after
asking the organization for a quotation. These spaces are set up by the organization only and must be
open for all the opening hours of the Village.
Requests and a detailed presentation of the animations must be sent before May 1, 2010.


4. CONDITIONS FOR PARTICIPATION

Registration deadline: May 1, 2010

The competitors commit themselves not only to accept and apply these specifications, but they also
commit themselves to attend the animations or official manifestations to take place during the event,
especially the awards ceremonies (compulsory presence of four members of the team, at least).
