Telefonica Black is a stripped out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads!
On Telefonica we like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail.
The Course – ARC
The iconic Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) starts in Gran Canaria and finishes in Saint Lucia. You will set sail from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to participate in the world-renowned ARC. This is the biggest trans-ocean sailing event in the world.
The ARC takes you across 2,700 miles of the Atlantic Ocean on the trade wind route intended to give optimum exciting downwind sailing. It is one of the most civilised yet exciting ways of crossing the Atlantic Ocean. It is an aspiration of most sailors – leaving the winter weather behind them in the UK to sail non-stop through the tropics. It is sure to be a very memorable moment of your life!
