The ARC is 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. When you set of you head South West until the butter melts then turn right and point at the Caribbean with the crossing taking 15 to 18 days.
Performance Yacht Charter has been sailing across the Atlantic annually with ARC since 2009 and can ensure your crossing is everything you expect and more.
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.
