Another busy ARC season for November 2023

The build up to the 2023 ARC season has begun with the first boats already arrived in Las Palmas marina, positioning early for the November departures. Many others are heading south, enjoying a slow summer cruise around Spain and Portugal.

We recommend that boats are across Biscay by the end of August and for the easiest passage should arrive in the Canary Islands by early October. This leaves plenty of time for final preparations, or to explore some of the other islands in the archipelago just when the weather further north is turning chilly.

Both routes, ARC+ Cape Verde and the classic ARC (Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia), are fully subscribed for 2023. However, as we receive withdrawals, we are giving places to boats on the wait list, so if you want to sail with us in 2023 and have not registered yet, do get in touch right away.

ARC Routes for 2024

The entry list for the November 2024 departures will open in early September 2023 and, once again, we expect demand for spaces on both routes to be high. Do make sure that you have registered your interest for 2024 via our website "tell me more" button, so that you will receive the 2024 information and registration link once the routes are open in September.
