ARC 2020 - COVID19 (Coronavirus) update

by World Cruising Club 17 Mar 22:07 UTC
ARC Atlantic Rally - Welcome to Gran Canaria © World Cruising

World Cruising Club would like to assure ARC 2020 rally participants that we are continually monitoring the on-going situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. This is of course a rapidly changing situation and we are working to support current participants of our two World ARC fleets, and those planning to participate in upcoming sailing rallies in the first half of 2020.

As the ARC takes place in November, it is currently our intention to run the rally as planned. At this time it is not possible to say if the impact of the COVID-19 health measures will last beyond the summer, although it is anticipated that the public health emergency will have passed by then. We recognise that boats and crews need to position themselves in Gran Canaria in preparation for the crossing and there will be uncertainty over the longer term impacts of international air travel.

We will be communicating with all rally participants to help support their preparations and provide further updates. World Cruising Club are committed to ensuring the health and welfare of our staff and participants above all and will continue to monitor and follow guidance relating to international tourism and social events.
