Re: Interesting Sailboats

Incredible!!!!! The 2012 Atlantic Rally Crossing (ARC) that will start only in 8 months is already full. They have opened an waiting list and hopefully they will increase the number of participants.

The accepted inscriptions are 260:

23 catamarans and 42 boats in the racing divisions. The smallest boat to date is Wolfgang Vandrey's Contest 28 Quetzal (GER) ...

ARC 2012 boats are sailing under
33 different national flags - a real united nations of sail! ..

30% of the fleet are flying the British ensign and 12% are German. Its great to see big fleets from Norway, Italy, USA, Australia, Netherlands, Sweden and France. ..

There is always an award for the oldest boat sailing in the ARC, and it looks like a tie-breaker for 2012. Both Peter von Seestermuhe (GER), owned by long-term ARC-supporter Christoph von Reibnitz and Peter Brownsell's Peregrin (GBR) were built in 1936. ..

If you want to join the wait list, you will need to pay the boat entry fee in full. We can't guarantee you a place, but will give a full refund if we can't get you into ARC2012.
