November to January - three ARC Transatlantic routes

ARC January is now established as a regular event on our calendar following this year's inaugural rally which set off from Las Palmas in early January and is now making landfall in Saint Lucia. The later departure date gives skippers more time to get boats ready and in position, especially useful for new boats. The 2023 edition is already open for registration.

ARC+ Cape Verde for 2022 is fully subscribed and we have also closed the waitlist. Registration for the 2023 edition of this popular transatlantic route which crosses via Cape Verde to Grenada opens in September.

ARC (November) the original rally route, and still the most popular of all our events is full for the November 2022 edition, but we are still accepting smaller monohulls on to our waitlist. We know from previous years that plans change, especially with the prospect of an immovable departure date, so we anticipate some entries being cancelled during the spring and early summer. Registration for the 2023 November routes will open in September this year.
