  • ARC Portugal

    Near-perfect weather set the scene for a comfortable crossing of the Bay of Biscay for the crews of the 18 boats taking part in the annual ARC Portugal rally, which departed Plymouth yesterday (3rd June). Crossing "the Bay" is often the first long offshore passage for many cruising sailors, and with its reputation for strong weather combined with busy shipping lanes, it can be a challenging sail. However, the lure of sunnier southern sailing in Spain, Portugal and into the Mediterranean is the reward for making the 550nm passage to NW Spain.
