World ARC 2020/21 fleet begins Leg 2 at Santa Marta Marina. 22/01/2020

After an exciting week in Santa Marta, Colombia the World ARC fleet set off on Leg 2, to Porvenir in the San Blas islands – where they will undertake clearances into the overwhelmingly beautiful San Blas Islands. In stark contrast to such a dramatic windy arrival, only 8 knots blew across the fleet’s sails as the boats crossed the start line at midday today, 22nd January. It was a close start, with the majority of boats crossing the line on starboard tack close to the island, beating up into the wind. Accompanied by tug boats Pino and Salvatore, the yellow shirts and yachts who deferred their departure gave a warm send off to the fleet as they embark on Leg 2. During the past week, participants have enjoyed a lively schedule full of local tours and social evenings. Many participants took... Click here for more info..
