The 33rd year of ARC arrivals are now in the Caribbean. This year the World Cruising Club organized 4 separate fleets, departing southbound from Hampton, Virginia for the BVI, (Caribbean 1500) and 3 groups departing Canaries/Cape Verdes (ARC, ARC+) for St. Lucia and (new this year) St. Vincent, ocean passages of 1500 to 2700 nm.
This year’s ARC/ARC+ fleet was diverse, representing many nations, and included a record number of boats (255) and 1500+ crew of all ages on yachts from 30-130 ft. Prizes were awarded in all racing and cruising divisions as well as other special achievements. You can review the detailed results for all divisions on the WCC website.
The all-volunteer team at the Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) congratulates all WCC rally participants on their outstanding achievement and hopes all will enjoy safe cruising in the Caribbean. CSSN encourages those who are new to the Caribbean, and those who are returning to utilize the many resources made available at the CSSN website www.safetyandsecuritynet.org
