With the 2015 edition of the World Cruising Club’s ‘Atlantic Rally for Cruisers’ (ARC) starting from Las Palmas Gran Canaria on 22nd November, over 200 yachts of all types & sizes and from all nationalities will cross the start line ahead of a 2,700Nm adventure bound for St.Lucia in the Caribbean.
“The ARC is for everyone; families with children, tough racers, cruising couples, big boats and modest boats. Crossing the Atlantic together, but having their own adventures. More than just a boat race, the ARC is about friendships made ashore in the two weeks of pre-departure activities continued over the radio net at sea. It’s about arriving in Saint Lucia to be met on the dock with a rum punch and a chilled beer, knowing you have achieved something fantastic – crossing an ocean on a small sailboat.” (www.worldcruising.com)
