Vendée Gliss

On the large sandy beach at Saint-Jean-de-Monts, this three-day event involves a series of water-based competitions and demonstrations.

Long distance stand-up paddle, Île d’Yeu to Saint-Jean-de-Monts

80 participants will traverse the 12 miles separating the island from the resort. For this second edition, the race will become an international event, being one of the two French stages of the Eurotour (the world’s main stand-up paddle circuit), uniting the best internationals in the discipline.

Technical courses

Open to elites and amateurs, participants will navigate around two buoys and make a loop of around a kilometre. This beach-side run with beach boarding and paddling is always popular with spectators.

L.A. Fun Cup

This regional windsurf circuit makes a stop at the Vendée Gliss this year. Around 40 windsurfers will compete in slalom races on Les Oiseaux beach.

Paddle challenge

Challenge a team of four to attack two new paddle events. The first round will consist of a relay similar to the technical course, with a change of paddler at each pass, and the second round on a big paddle.
