ARC Start

November 2021

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

The world-renowned Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) departs Las Palmas, Gran Canaria on 21 November 2021. 300 entries are expected for this year’s event, including many Oyster yachts. For any Oyster World Rally entrants, this classic race is a great way to cross the Atlantic in fantastic company and start your adventure of a lifetime. You can enter either the cruising or racing classes, depending how energetic you want to be!

A vibrant social and shore activity programme in Las Palmas gives you the opportunity to join in the exciting build-up to the event, meet fellow Oyster owners as well as many other like-minded sailors and soak up the great atmosphere this generates.

After approximately three weeks making passage across the Atlantic, the ARC finishes in the stunning Caribbean island of Saint Lucia (time at sea is dependent on the fickle Tradewinds and many skippers can claim they have completed the race in as little as 16 days). Here you will find a warm welcome in this tropical paradise, renowned for its pristine white beaches, volcanoes and five-star luxury resorts, and don’t forget the rum!
