Route Halifax–Saint-Pierre is a world class ocean race held every two years (opposite the Marblehead–Halifax race) from Halifax to Saint-Pierre, the French island off the south coast of Newfoundland.
RHSP is now well established in the calendar of international ocean races. Attracting yachts from Canada, the United States and France, sailors enjoy the challenge presented by approximately 563 km of Atlantic Ocean, Cabot Strait, and the rocky approaches to the islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.
The race continues to foster the close social and economic relationships between eastern Canada and the French islands. The race brings together sailors from many maritime regions, who sail over a demanding course and end up at a destination extraordinaire.
All classes depart July 8 at noon from Halifax Harbour. The start is a thrilling spectacle not to be missed.
