World Cruising Club ARC 2014
Aglaia strips down and goes into race mode
November 23rd 2014 – 12 to 16 days, apprx (2800nm)
Aglaia took part in the racing division of the 2014 ARC leaving Gran Canaria on the 23rd of November.
The ARC is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1200 people every year to sail 2800 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia.
The ARC is for everyone; families with children, tough racers, cruising couples, big boats and modest boats. Crossing the Atlantic together, but having their own adventures. More than just a boat race, the ARC is about friendships made ashore in the two weeks of pre-departure activities continued over the radio net at sea. It’s about arriving in Saint Lucia to be met on the dock with a rum punch and a chilled beer, knowing you have achieved something fantastic – crossing an ocean on a small sailboat.
January 2015 – May 2015
Christmas and New Year saw Aglaia’s adventure starting in St Lucia exploring south to the beautiful Tobago Cays marine park for traditional Caribbean beach BBQ’s, swimming, exploring and enjoying the crystal clear waters.
