The ARC - The Atlantic Rally

Skyelark is currently taking bookings for the ARC 2018.

At full sailJoin Skyelark for the 2018 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. This is an amazing adventure involving sailing across the Atlantic with around 250 other yachts. We depart from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria on the 24th November 2018, and arrive 16-18 days later in St Lucia, Caribbean. This is an opportunity not to be missed!

This race is the highlight of Skyelark's program of events and this year promises to be another unforgettable experience. Skyelark regularly does well in her class and often picks up a prize or two, despite the fact that we put more emphasis on a safe, comfortable crossing and having a great time, rather than racing. You can read daily logs of the adventures and experiences on our ARC blog.

Skyelark is a ARC veteran with 8 previous events under her keel. Owner skippered, professionally maintained and cat 0 coded for unrestricted use, we are almost certainly the most qualified, experienced and licensed boat on the circuit.

CelebrationOn board you will be involved with all aspects of sailing the boat, sitting watches, changing sails, cooking, baking bread and fishing off the back of the boat, with the hope of catching supper. There may even be the opportunity for a quick swim mid-Atlantic if the winds are light!

Skyelark is currently available for small groups and individuals, or for whole-boat charter!

Package includes:

  • Great food!
  • All safety equipment.
  • Bedding.
  • Entry passes to the parties and seminars.
  • Training weekend in the Solent during the summer to meet your skipper, fellow crew-mates, and to get used to the boat.
