ARC Europe

Cruise in company from the Caribbean or USA to Marina de Lagos in southern Portugal. Explore the Atlantic islands of Bermuda and the Azores with friends.
More than just a trans-ocean delivery, ARC Europe is a convivial way to start a European adventure or to end a Caribbean season. The rally has two starts; from the Chesapeake on the US East Coast, and from Nanny Cay, Tortola BVI; with the two fleets meeting in Bermuda. Then on to cruise the Azores, seeing bull running, flowers, traditional buildings and spectacular scenery before the final voyage to Europe.
Our team are with you in every port, helping you make the most of your time ashore with parties and tours, advice and support.
“It has been a lot of fun to cruise the Azores in the company of other ARC Europe boats”

It really was a highlight of our year's sailing last year.

Margaret Meade, sy Re Shuanta
Thank you for a fantastic event. It was the first time we partook in an ARC event and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would particularly like to complement World Cruising on the team they had in place at Nanny Cay, Bermuda and the Azores. Lyall, Kieran and Nick were exceptionally professional, unbelievably pleasant despite having numerous yachts demanding various things from them. They always had a smile and were always willing to help irrespective of the time of day or weather conditions - which we can personally vouch for following our arrival into Horta.

Hiking the 'Gut' in Tortola

Last year the fleet had slow-going, making for a lazy few days in Tortola for the Yellowshirt team. Read their account of hiking the 'gut' behind Nanny Cay and up onto the mountains, a fantastic way to kill some time and a grand adventure!
