ARC+ is just another alternative route to participate in the World Cruising Club’s ARC which departs Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to simply beautiful Saint Lucia.  The event starts two weeks ahead of the traditional ARC in November annually with sailors stopping over in the Cape Verde Islands.  The ARC+ fleet will re-group in the Cape Verdes before setting off with the trade winds across the Atlantic to Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia for a tremendous Saint Lucian welcome, complete with the island delicious rum punch and a full programme of social activities and tours for which the ARC is renown.
