A return to France for the first time since 2016

A World Series favourite makes a welcome return to the calendar this season following a three-year break, and for the first-time ever the women will get to experience this daunting venue situated in the Bay of Biscay. In previous years, buzzing crowds of up to 75,000 thousand spectators have fallen silent for the men's three-second freefalls from 27m, and will this time have the added treat of seeing the women showcase their acrobatic skills from 21m.

Looking back on a long tradition of fishing and trading, the seaport of La Rochelle was once the largest on the French Atlantic coast. Nowadays, the city and its 80,000 inhabitants still maintain strong links with the sea by harbouring the largest marina for pleasure boats in Europe.
