ARC - Atlantic Rally for Cruisers
The 15th. ARC saw a spectacular start from Las Palmas in the Gran Canaria Islands on 19th of November, with impressive 215 yachts participating.
Apart from the incident to one of the skippers, who was injured by an accidental gybe and transferred by a ship to a Hospital in Cap Verde - all is going well in the Rally.
The predominant Northeasterly "trade winds", aided by nice sunshine is keeping morale and boat speed high.
The first arrivals to St. Lucia are expected these days on 2nd December 2000.
