This pre-race programme will also involve the purchasing and stowage of provisions, social events and will allow you to attend a variety of seminars as offered by the ARC race organisers.

Why we love the ARC Transatlantic Race

Join the winners! In 2010 Global Yacht Racing and EH01 won both their division and the IRC class overall and have the pewter mug to prove it. For first timers the ARC Race is definitely the challenge of a lifetime and nothing beats the sense of achievement of arriving at your destination after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Even for seasoned ocean warriors there is something amazing about being propelled across such a vast stretch of water by harnessing the power of nature. Offshore yacht racing is also about experiencing the powerful beauty of the nature, whether it be a serene sunset or a wild gale whipping the tops of towering waves. Or if you’re not into all that hippy sentiment then the satisfaction of being able to say “been there and got the T-shirt” is enough! Either way we’ve been doing this race since 2006 and can say that nothing comes close to the feeling of that first celebratory drink on the dock upon arrival in St Lucia after two weeks at sea!
