Cette course - hommage aux soldats américains venus se battre aux côtés de la France il y a 100 ans en 1917 - rassemble quatre skippers français de renoms, Thomas Coville (Sodebo), Francis Joyon (Idec), François Gabart (Macif) et Yves Le Blévec. Le coup d'envoi de la course a été très relayé sur les réseaux sociaux.

Au moment du départ, un feu d'artifice a été donné et un Airbus très gros-porteur A380 a survolé le paquebot. Un Magnifique et émouvant spectacle suivi par des dizaines de milliers de personnes. Les quatre maxi-trimarans devraient suivre 24 à 48 heures plus tard. La régate s'annonce néanmoins passionnante, ouverte et engagée, entre les équipages invités à se mesurer pour la première fois sur ce parcours entre les ponts de Saint-Nazaire et Verrazano. "(.) Ce drame gravé dans nos mémoires nous empêchera bien sûr de participer pleinement aux autres événements", a déclaré Daniel Bartolomé, président de l'association des victimes de la passerelle du Queen Mary 2 (AVPQM2), avant de déposer une gerbe accompagné de ses deux enfants, "au nom de toutes les victimes blessées ou décédées".
