The Transat Québec-Saint-Malo 2016, the 9th edition (July 1-13, Québec) & (July 18-28, Saint-Malo)

The Transat Québec Saint-Malo (TQSM) is the oldest west-to-east, nonstop, trans-Atlantic, crewed race. Every four years since 1984, oceangoing racers speed along the St. Lawrence River between Québec City and Lévis, to meet the challenge of sailing its hazards, currents and tides, cross the North Atlantic and avoid icebergs, to finally enter the English Channel in dense maritime traffic and strong currents.
