ARC – Atlantic Rally for Cruisers

November 25 - December 15

The ARC is the longest running annual transatlantic rally, it starts on the last Sunday in November from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and finishes in Rodney Bay, St Lucia.

The 2,700 nautical mile passage on the North East tradewind is a safe and enjoyable way to sail across the Atlantic. With more than 200 boats participating in this event, the rally is characterised by a tremendous camaraderie between all those taking part.

Although no previous ocean experience is required as the professional crew will guide you through the sailing safely and enjoyable. We do however highly recommend that all the crew have assessed whether or not they enjoy sailing and have sailed overnight and away from the sight of land before the crossing.
