ARC+ & ARC 2022

The World Racing Club organizes the legendary ARC sailing

World Cruising Club organizes the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC and ARC+) every year. The first ARC was organized in 1986. It was the first transoceanic sailing competition and as a result the World Cruising Club was also born. This year's ARC+ includes e.g. Lagoon 42 and Lagoon 50 delivered by YachtsAgent.  

ARC

ARC is on the bucket list of many sailors and more than 200 boats and more than 1200 people participate in it every year. The sailing route goes from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia in the Caribbean. The distance on this route is a total of 2700 M. ARC is intended for everyone. For families with children, fierce competitors, sailing couples. For both small and larger ships. ARC starts on November 20, 2022.

ARC+

ARC+ was developed to meet the ever-growing popularity of ARC sailing. The route runs from Gran Canaria via Cape Verde to the Caribbean to Grenada. The route includes a 4-6 day stop in beautiful Sao Vicente. Participants have the opportunity to get to know local culture, nightlife and lively food markets. ARC+ sailing started on November 6. accompanied by Lagoon 42, Balance 3, skippered by Pasi Heiskanen, crossed the starting line first. Lagoon 50, Sirocco, also did well at the start and crossed the starting line second. Sirocco sailing under the Estonian flag is captained by Indrek Prants. Here you can follow the progress of the Lagoons in the Atlantic.

ARC is more than a sailing competition

The participants have settled in Gran Canaria's Las Palmas port to prepare well in advance of the start. The days leading up to the race are full of activities to help the crew prepare and relax. Before departure, participants can e.g. to plant trees in the ARC forest as part of the Foresta project. Thousands of trees have been planted in the ARC forest by sailing participants over the past decade. ARC is also a social event.

Parties are organized for the participants almost every night, where you can exchange sailing experiences over a drink or two. In addition, numerous seminars are also organized before departure, where participants receive valuable lessons and practical information from the experienced ARC team. Anna Black, who participated in ARC for eight years in a row with her husband, said in her interview: "As long as you can keep the water out, the people in, and get there, you're ready." This sums up the mentality of those who go to ARC. ARC is more than a sailing race, once in the Caribbean, when the sailors are welcomed with a cold beer and rum, they will surely know that they have achieved something unique, crossing the Atlantic.
