ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers)


Join us on this trans-Atlantic rally in 2017 on our Beneteau First 40 Carbon Edition.

This iconic rally starts in Grand Canaria and finishes in Saint Lucia. In November, around 250 yachts will set sail from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to participate in the world renowned Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC). This is the biggest trans-ocean event in the world.

The ARC takes you across 2700 miles of the Atlantic Ocean on the trade wind route intended to give optimum exciting downwind sailing. It is one of the most civilised ways of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

It is an aspiration of most sailors – leaving the winter weather behind them in the UK to sail non-stop through the tropics. It is sure to be a very memorable moment of your life! 

We are also offering the Delivery Passages from Ipswich, UK to Grand Canaria over four legs.

There is also the option to charter a whole boat with a professional skipper to take part in the race. Contact us for details. 

Pre-Race Requirement:

  • RYA Sea Survival
  • RYA First Aid
  • ISAF/Heavy Weather
  • Must have sailed with EASS previously
