About ARC Baltic 2019
Our six week summer rally comprising some of the most beautiful and interesting sights in the Baltic. The rally format has been adapted to the Baltic and the individual rally legs are one to two days, with the focus to experience the cultural history of the region and enjoy the stunning beauty of the Swedish and Finnish archipelagos.
Starting from the Baltic port of Rostock, the ARC Baltic itinerary includes the Estonian capital Tallin, the former Russian Imperial capital St. Petersburg, the Finnish capital Helsinki, the Finnish provincial capital Mariehamn, and the Swedish capital Stockholm. En route, the rally sails through some of the most beautiful and interesting sights in the Baltic including cruises in the Finnish and Swedish archipelagos. Read more about the route highlights
Over six weeks the rally will sail close to 1500 nautical miles, with an itinerary that allows flexibility for the prevailing weather encountered. The sail east en route to St. Petersburg is more demanding and passages often include two nights at sea. The itinerary for the return sail west allows more time to explore, relax and fully appreciate the sailing and anchorages that the Finnish and Swedish archipelagos have to offer. Yachts and crews should be fully prepared for night sailing, coastal pilotage, varying weather conditions and the challenges of navigation amongst the skerries of the Finnish and Swedish archipelago.
