Mile Building & ARC 2020

Mile Building and Cruising

Throughout the year we have events around Europe and the South Coast of England that require us to deliver the yachts to the event they are to participate in. These trips are perfect for individuals or groups looking to gain experience and mileage towards their RYA certification or simply just to go for a nice cruise to a destination outside of the Solent.

For more details on these trips please contact the office and they will advise you of the upcoming trips.

Atlantic Rally for Cruisers -  Nov 2020

Join us to race across the Atlantic Ocean on 'Oarsome Dream', our 2019 Dufour 460 Grand Large.

Sailing from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia - 2700nm
 

The  ARC  fleet of approximately 200 boats will start their Atlantic adventure on Sunday 22nd November 2020 and sail to Saint Lucia, spending 18-21 days at sea on the classic trade wind route. You can expect blue water, dolphins, beautiful sunsets, fishing and lots of nights sailing by star light - and a specatular welcome in Rodney Bay by the ARC team.

Our program includes:
Wed 18th Nov - Crew arrive in Las Palmas
Thurs 19th Nov- Crew meet on board to get to know each other, yacht familiarisation and full safety briefing
Fri 20th Nov - Full day of sail training followed by the ARC Leaving party and fireworks
Sat 21st Nov- Crew day off. Explore the island, relax, go surfing, enjoy the last hot shower for two weeks! Your skipper and mate will be attending the Skippers Briefing and doing the final provisioning and preparation
Sun 22nd - Everyone moves on board, lines slipped and race start at midday. Next stop St Lucia!
Anticipated Crossing time is 18 - 19 days but please allow at least 21 as we are at the whim of the wind gods!

'Oarsome Dream' is a well appointed luxury performance cruiser. She has four double cabins, a bunk cabin and a spacious saloon to sleep 12 in total. Her galley is well euqipped cooking at sea and benefits from a three burner gas oven, two fridges and plenty of storage. She has a huge cockpit and even a cockpit table - perfect for chess tournaments and meals al fresco.

Cost

£4495 per person

What's included

Yacht, skipper, mate, entry fees, food when sailing, diesel, marina costs and a team top.

Please note there is no on board accommdation before the start in Las Palmas. The boat is (organised) chaos with last minute preparations, food stowage and so on - shoreside accommodation is a much better option. There is lots of accommodation available in the Las Palmas area from hostels to appartments to smart hotels - something for every budget.

Accommodation on board in St Lucia is available for three nights - but you'll probably want to get an air conditioned hotel room by then!
