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)

I have to admit that I was a little cynical and wary about whether I wanted to be organised into a rally environment before signing up but I am now a convert – and indeed should anyone enquire I will be an advocate for both this event and your organisation

The level of support was just pitched perfectly and the quiet way that the team organised both us and the overall group was superbly efficient but without fuss and over complication. The camaraderie of the participants was fantastic and added a rich element to our first transatlantic experience.

Chris & Kate Russell, Associate3

On behalf of myself and my four crew I would like to thank you and all your team for making our time with ARC 2016 a mighty and most enjoyable experience. From the moment we arrived in Las Palmas till departure from Rodney Bay we were looked after so well by your team. All our problems/queries were dealt with in a most competent and satisfactory manner. It was a first class experience for all of us. I had always said that I would only do a trans Atlantic once however this has changed and I will hopefully do it again with ARC!
