This November amongst 250 yachts we will cross the Atlantic from Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) to Saint Lucia in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC). It’s the biggest trans-ocean sailing event in the world, getting you from one side of the Atlantic to the other without any jet lag.

For many people, sailing across the Atlantic falls into the same category as climbing Mt. Everest. Even among serious sailors, a transatlantic crossing is not something to be taken lightly. No matter how many times you’ve flown over it whilst watching a movie or trying in vain to get some sleep, there remains a certain romance about the notion of traversing between the old world and the new by the same method as Christopher Columbus.

Taking advantage of the North East Trade Winds, the ARC is one of the most civilised ways of crossing the Atlantic Ocean. The 2.700 nautical mile rally is something most sailors only dream of. Leave the cold nights and winter weather behind you and sail non-stop with us through the tropics to the Caribbean. This will surely be one of the most memorable events of your life. Do it safely, comfortable and in good company!

You can either buy an individual berth or charter the entire boat plus skipper and first mate. We have 7 berths available.

Individual charter fee: € 6.990

Entire boat charter fee: € 44.990
