ARC Plus



ARC+ takes sailors across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to the Caribbean via the Cape Verde archipelago. Originally launched in response to the ever growing popularity of the ARC, the route via the Cape Verde islands is now firmly established as a standalone rally with its own unique identity.

The Cape Verde islands are ideally placed for boats to sail ‘south until the butter melts’ and the route includes a 4 to 6 day stopover at Mindelo, São Vicente providing crews with an opportunity to discover the enchanting local culture, lively nightlife and bustling food markets that make the Cape Verdes a fascinating place to visit.

The new landfall marina is Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina. This recently refurbished 227 berth marina is situated in the lagoon to the south of St George’s Harbour, and is ideally placed for the Atlantic crossing landfall. Grenada is situated at the southern end of the Windward Island chain, with superb beaches, coves and islands, it is a delightful destination, ideally placed for sailing north through some of best cruising areas in the Caribbean.

TESTIMONIALS
“The ARC made such a difference to our sailing experience as a family. We met wonderful friends and the staff of yellow shirts went beyond the call of duty time and again.”
Lucy Van Hove, S/Y La Cigale
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.
