The ARC+ is an internationally renowned rally organized by the World Cruising Club, a world specialist in sailing rallies. It is both a safe and social cruise / race. It's about crossing the oceans with friends, feeling confident and prepared on the day of departure, benefiting from logistical support at sea if necessary.
The ARC+ is a must for many sailors, and attracts about a hundred boats to sail 2700 nautical miles across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Caribbean, via the Cape Verde archipelago.
