In 2017, the famous ARC Atlantic rally celebrated its 32nd edition. The rally offers to the sailors from all over the world to sail through the Atlantic and gives them assistance, security and services for a transoceanic trip.
Lagoon catamarans represent more than one third of the fleet of the event: with 10 catamarans for the crossing on the ARC (route from Canary Islands to the Caribbean) and 9 catamarans registered at the ARC + (route from Cape Verde to Caribbean). The catamarans included Lagoon 42, Lagoon 450S, Lagoon 450 Flybridge and more.
Recognised as the world leading brand of cruising catamarans, Lagoon enjoys tremendous success in Asia. The rally proves that Lagoon catamarans not just are great for sailing near coasts but have also demonstrated their ocean going capabilities “in real life,” by participating at the ARC and ARC+. Indeed, the Lagoon catamarans are conceived, drawn and built with ocean passages in mind, and perform unforgettable circumnavigations with their owners. On top of this, they are able to sail with a substantial payloads, corresponding to the needed equipment for long passages, essential for blue water cruising, whilst maintaining sailing performance all along.
Partner of the ARC for 12 years, Lagoon looks forward to seeing all the multihull owners at the 33rd edition, which will start from the Canaries on 25 November 2018! For more information on Lagoon catamarans and sailing in Asia, contact us at [email protected].
