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”

TESTIMONIALS

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


Margaret Meade, sy Re Shuanta
Joining ARC Europe is not only crossing an ocean, but sharing the experience of a lifetime with an amazing group of sailors and making friendships forever. We joined ARC Europe for safety reasons but it turned out to be the final highlight of this year's journey.
