Some of you already know that Nigel Watsham and myself are sailing the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to St Lucia, leaving 23rd November and getting to St Lucia mid December. This will be part of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) when 200+ yachts are taking part. We have a 42ft Beneteau 411 Celebration boat, with 6 people on board. We are hoping to make the crossing in 3 weeks.
If you are interested you can follow our progress using the Fleet Tracker on the World Cruising Club Web Site
When you visit the above website, choose the ARC 2014 (Gran Canaria to St Lucia) option, and then find our boat, Reservoir Dogs, Cruising Division I, from the options on the lefthand side of the screen (click the Teams tab to see).
Nigel is also raising money for the Queen Elizabeth University hospital Birmingham and the British Liver Foundation. If you would like more information and/or to make a donation, please visit his Just Giving page at:
Trust you are all keeping well and hoping to see you in the New Year!
