ARC



The ARC is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1200 people every year to sail 2700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia.

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.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for a great event, and most probably one of the best experiences of my life” Max Klink, yacht Caro (GER)

TESTIMONIALS

Before I left for Belgium I did not have a chance to thank you and the whole ARC Team for giving me the opportunity to accomplish one of my dreams. It has been a wonderful experience thanks to careful preparation using all the many tips and recommendations you supplied. In particular the various seminars in Las Palmas were extremely helpful to ensure a smooth passage. Thank you for this highly professional organisation, thank you for the kindness of your team.
Bernard Coppens - Soledonna , ARC 2012
