Malizia Ocean Festival and Boat Christening in Hamburg


Back in town! We will celebrate the first Malizia Ocean Festival in the heart of Hamburg, the Traditionsschiffhafen, on 6 and 7 September 2022! With a large two-day event and a new boat, we want to share the adventure of our sport with the German public and our partners who have supported us since the start of the Vendée Globe. This event is public and will feature highlights such as the christening of our new Malizia – Seaexplorer, as well as exciting events and tents including exhibitions on sustainable shipping, sustainable materials, coral protection and virtual reality experiences. Live music, food trucks and fresh drinks will contribute to a festive atmosphere on the pontoon of the Traditionsschiffhafen and the Magellan Terrassen.

We will sail from Lorient, France, where we launched our new Malizia – Seaexplorer on 19 July, to the northern German city. The arrival will be a very special moment, as it will be the first time since 2018 that Boris will be in his hometown with his race yacht.

Check out the programme below and stay tuned in the coming weeks as we will share more details about the event!
