Atlantic Rally for Cruisers 2007 - Gran Canaria to Santa Lucía

Published in Living in Gran Canaria, News
 ARc 2007 This Sunday a very good friend invited me to a unique experience. We sailed out with his small but nice sailing boat to say good bye to 235 yachts 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 a boat. This is the 22nd edition of the ARC, the 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 newspaper La Provincia and in my gallery. By Ramón Sánchez Bruhn
