The iconic Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) starts in Gran Canaria and finishes in Saint Lucia. In November, around 250 yachts will set sail from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to participate in the world-renowned ARC. This is the biggest trans-ocean sailing event in the world and we are joined up for the racing division.
The ARC takes you across 2,700 miles of the Atlantic Ocean on the trade wind route intended to give optimum exciting downwind sailing. It is one of the most civilised yet exciting ways of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
It is an aspiration of most sailors – leaving the winter weather behind them in the UK to sail non-stop through the tropics. It is sure to be a very memorable moment in your life!
