Sands of Les Sables d'Olonne

 "Les Sables d'Olonne" literally means the Sands of d'Olonne. This small city where the Vendee Globe begins and ends has a beautiful sand beach right at the city's edge. These are pictures of this stunning beach and its surroundings. Very soon, Skipper Rich Wilson will be back here in Les Sables d'Olonne.
