At Xtreme Districts we focus on the maritime world as we are sailors ourselves and we know how important preparations are. We donâ€™t have to tell you. We donâ€™t lecture, all we do is give advice on how to plan a safe trip where communications come into the planning. Have a great, adventurous and safe trip is what we wish you.

The VendĂ©e Globe, non-stop sailed without assistance, was founded by Philippe Jeantot in 1989. Since 1992 the race has taken place every four years.Â The race is a serious test of individual endurance, as it is a single-handed non-stop round-the-world race and therefore regarded by many as the ultimate in ocean racing.
