Social and events 
 
The ARC is a social rally. I have done it in 2005, 2010, 2011 and 2012. It's now my 5th rally. Around 1800 to over 2000 peoples from over 20 nations sail in this rally. You find sailors in the age from 16 to over 80 years and also families with little children. You find peoples they making an ocean passage for the first time or repeating the ARC Rally or only for adventures. You find retirement peoples or some they take a sabbatical time. Some of the ARC participants go then further with the World ARC. It’s the opportunity to make new friends, exchange the experiences they have. 
 
From the beginning on, when the “doors” are open, you have daily organized fun activities, parties, courses about preparations for the sea. E.g. you can plant trees, you go for a sightseeing tour around the island or see the old Town of Las Palmas. I will register every participant in time for all courses and offers at this event. 
 
Besides that, the crew will have the opportunity to visit a lot of courses as astronavigation, provisioning, weather on Atlantic, safety. I prefer to have all my “sailors” at the minimum of 1 – 2 weeks on board of the sailing yacht Suffisant. 
 
Between the 9th and 20th November 2020 the World Cruising Club is organize those events. It is also suggested that every member is help with the provisioning which means shopping, wash all vegetables, fruits, help with the storages and practice beside that the MOB, Parasailor manoeuver and go familiarized with the boat. 
 
The organization of World cruising Club require for that rally quiet a lot of safety equipment’s. They have a team of experienced inspectors which will come before the rally starts onboard and check the equipment. 
 
After the start in Las Palmas we are under way around 20-22 days/nights. This means, we have to carry food and beverages, diesel, spare parts, sails (Genoa, Main, Try, Gale, Parasailor). The space on the yacht is limited. Everything has to be calculated precisely. The participant will be interviewed by me about allergies, food, beverages etc. to make a calculation precisely. 
 
It is seriously required, that those peoples, which participant with my boat, that they are work well in a team and me. 
 
As we are 24 hours and 20 days tithed on a small yacht, it is also required, that the participant has an open mind, is healthy and could do a 4-6 hours watch behind the wheel without problems. The participant should be also able to help to fix sails or help in repairing little things. 
 
The Suffisant will be special prepared for this event and I will go to renew the rig, sails etc. Besides that, the yacht will be checked from top to down, through hulls will be changed and much more. I leave nothing to change. 

Still interested? I'll take you on my waiting list.
