Embark on an adventure of a lifetime, this epic rally will take you soaring across the Atlantic Ocean 

21 nights approximately: 17 November - 09 December 2021

£3,950 per person

This iconic rally starts in Gran Canaria and finishes in Saint Lucia. In November each year, around 250 yachts set sail from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to participate in the world-renowned Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC). This is the biggest trans-ocean event in the world.

The ARC passage takes you across 2700 miles of the Atlantic Ocean on the trade wind route intended to provide the most civilised way of crossing the ocean with ideal and exciting downwind sailing. The race will take between 2 – 3 weeks depending on the conditions and finishes in the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia. This is a definite bucket list race for most sailors!

Let’s leave the winter weather behind in the UK to sail non-stop almost 3000 nm to the sunshine of the Caribbean!

Thursday 19th Nov – Meet on board to get to know each other, a full safety briefing and training.
