ARC Portugal 2019 - Entries Now Open!

Celebrating 25 years of sailing South to Marina de Lagos   


Join us in 2019
Credited each year with introducing sailors to life-long cruising friends, ARC Portugal departs from Plymouth each June and crosses the Bay of Biscay to Bayona, then cruises south in a series of day sails with stopovers in welcoming marinas along the way to finish in Marina de Lagos a little over three weeks later. This scenic and social rally promises much more than a delivery trip to the Med - visits ashore to explore historic cities, excellent meals with breathtaking views and the World Cruising Club team on hand in every port make the rally a real holiday.

“ARC Portugal is a great way to cross the Biscay and cruise down the Atlantic coast to Lagos. You have like-minded and helpful sailors always close by for help and guidance. It is extremely sociable and you will meet people who I am sure will be friends for life.”
David Tipton, yacht Serendipity ARC Portugal 2013 & 2017
