Re: Trans Atlantic 2020 Nov/Dec East to West ARC or No ARC
Several years back I contacted the ARC officials about just doing the social aspects of the TransAt ARC and not the sail with the crowd and they quoted me a price. Like you Mark, having done numerous TransAts, I really don't feel the need to have someone go over my boat and do a safety check or for weather advice from anyone, but the parties sounded fun. Also, the thought of setting off with a huge crowd of mostly inexperienced sailors who feel there's safety in numbers on an ocean crossing, sends shivers down my spine.
