This Sunday a very goodÂ friendÂ invited me to a unique experience. We sailed out with his small butÂ nice sailing boat to say good bye to 235 yachtsÂ from 28 different nations on their way from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Santa Lucia.
In approx. 3 weeks, after sailing 2.700 nautical miles, they will arrive to the Caribbean island. For many as for myself it is a dream to cross once in life the Atlantic in aÂ boat.
This is the 22nd edition of the ARC, theÂ Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. In the official website of the World Cruising Club
you can read the full story and even follow the race in Google Earth. There is a nice picture gallery as well in the newspaperÂ La Provincia
and in my gallery
