Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island

This morning, the World ARC office opened in the Hernan Café. Situated on the busy seafront of Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, it’s an ideal location overlooking the anchorage. With only 6 days left until the start of the 4th Leg to the Marquesas, a week of planning, relaxing and World ARC functions await the fleet.

Fueling and water arrangements were booked through the World ARC agent, preparing yachts for the biggest leg of the rally (approx. 3000 miles). From stories and experiences shared already this morning, it would seem the Galapagos Islands have not disappointed.

The rest of the week will see yachts continuing to arrive. All are expected in by the 27th giving time for a Prize Giving, Rally Supper, and a Skippers Briefing. Tours on the Island give options to visit incredible snorkeling spots, beautiful beaches and lava tunnels created by the islands volcanic past. But Puerto Ayora is also a good base to explore other islands.

The Galapagos Islands have been a real treat for the World ARC fleet. This weekend is a long one lasting until Tuesday due to Carnival and the city of Puerto Ayora is bubbling with special events. Although the following week will be busier in preparation, exploration of the most developed island will no doubt be on the top of crews to do list.
