From Friday, June 16 2017 to Thursday, June 22 2017

On land and out at sea, this will be one long celebration.

Come to Nantes to watch the start of an unprecedented challenge: The Bridge 2017. The Queen Mary 2 and a fleet of trimarans will compete in an unusual race across the Atlantic. Celebrating the anniversary of the American landing in 1917, this event will set off from Nantes, travel to New York and finish in Vannes.
Between the steel giant and its state-of-the-art trimaran opponents, expect the unexpected with this sea cavalcade which you can watch as a passenger of the famous liner. Back on land there will be lots of events. Jazz concerts and top level urban basketball games are on the programme with the fourth 3 on 3 Basketball World Championship to be held for the first time in France.
