Patrick Boulier, President of the community of the Dieppe Region “DIEPPE MARITIME”
“It is now almost a tradition in Dieppe to welcome the arrival of the Solitaire URGO Le Figaro. We reserve, with all public and private partners, a beautiful birthday for the 50th anniversary of this legendary race. After the passage of the Hermione, which will stop at Dieppe on the sidelines of the Armada of Rouen, the arrival of the Skippers in the port of Dieppe will mark the opening of the tourist season and will also be an opportunity to highlight the assets and know-how of the Dieppe area.”
