A truly authentic island, Marie-Galante is a land of rural traditions which cultivates an exceptional way of life. Marie-Galante is proving to be the new destination in the French Antilles.

Covering a surface area of 158 km², the island, which is commonly called the "grande galette" owing to its circular shape and low-lying relief (editor's note, the highest peak, the Morne Constant, rises to 204 m), has three municipalities and 12,410 inhabitants.

Marie-Galante, which has up to 106 windmills, is also called the "island of one hundred windmills" or the "Grande dépendance". Marie-Galante, the arrival island for this transatlantic event, will be happy to welcome the fleet as it deserves and will provide a wonderful departure point for those wishing to discover the other islands in the Guadeloupe archipelago!  (Sources:
