ARC Atlantic Cross plan - 2018
As mentioned in our previous blog posts, we want to start moving our boat from Greece to Sicily. That will not be the final destination, only for one summer. At the beginning of 2018 we have to move the boat to Gran Canaria, where we want to attend ARC Atlantic Crossing regatta www.worldcruising.com.
It is not crazy professional regatta, main attendees are families and friends. Of course the crew has to be experienced, the boats has to be properly equipped, but the start is after the hurricane season, so usually there is no bigger weather danger.
The start is usually at the beginning of November, so we have to be there at least 1-2 weeks before to do the boat repairs and checking.
The trip usually takes around 20 days. The biggest challenge, at least from I could research, is the psychological aspects of being such a long time with same people on few sqm.
