What is The ARC?

The ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) is a sailing rally (what I like to call safety in numbers...) organised by the World Cruising Club that brings together circa 200 yachts to cross the Atlantic from Las Palmas Grand Canaria to St Lucia in the Caribbean Islands. On the 24th November we leave the Canary Islands, ending up in the Caribbean hopefully 3 weeks later (wind and weather dependent) The week before we leave the WCC sponsors rigorous safety checks, training sessions and of course a few parties! In April we received our ARC flag, which all participants fly, and shared it with our faithful crew Jane & Peter Stephens in Cornwall, then hoisted it on Hawkeye in Sanremo.
