ARC+ Cape Verdes: 11 Nov 2018

Atlantic Rally For Cruisers (ARC)

Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based days out and short-breaks for families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

The ARC+ is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1,200 people every year to sail 2,700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia via the Cape Verde Islands.

The ARC+ is for everyone; families with children, tough racers, cruising couples, big boats and modest boats. Everyone crosses the Atlantic together but at their own pace and with support crews on hand if problems occur.

More than just a boat race, the ARC is about friendships made ashore in the two weeks of pre-departure activities and 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.

Make a difference

Given the magnitude of the challenge, many skippers and crews choose to raise sponsorship funds for their chosen charity when competing in the race. We would be delighted if you would consider supporting Sail 4 Cancer. We will supply you with a flag in addition to setting up a secure online fundraising page for you on www.sail4cancer.org
