Revised dates for ARC Portugal 2021

We have proposed new schedule for ARC Portugal 2021, the annual rally sailing from Plymouth, UK, to Marina de Lagos on Portugal's Algarve.

In light of the continuing international restrictions in place to contain the spread of the coronavirus, and with the welfare of all involved in the event in mind, the rally's original dates planned for June have been rescheduled.

It is hoped that later this summer restriction measures will have eased to enable the rally to take place in late July. We will of course continue to monitor the situation and follow international directives relating to tourism and events.

By announcing the proposed schedule, we hope to provide some optimism and support to those still planning to sail south to Marina de Lagos this year.?
