Update on ARC 2013 Plans

Fri 31 May 2013 19:17
Still stuck in stormy weather in Bilbao :-(   We have a quick update on our ARC plans.  We have transferred to ARC+ which leaves earlier than the main rally on 10th November with a group of about 50 boats, sailing 850 nm to Cape Verdes Islands first for a couple of days exploring, then catching the trade winds for the 2100 n. miles to St Lucia.
We are very excited and thought that this slight change of plan would be a great opportunity to visit these beautiful islands on the way.
So, 10th November is our new departure date from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria...   then 20th November from Cape Verdes, arriving St Lucia probably around 18-20 days later.
Bye bye for now from a very rainy, gloomy, windy Bilbao.
