Offering wonderful sailing, superb seafood, and friendly beachfront ports, exploring the Portuguese coastline has long been a popular cruising location for those getting their first taste of the liveaboard lifestyle. With this in mind, World Cruising Club are organising a special free-to-attend webinar on "Cruising Portugal" taking place online on Saturday 23 January 2021 from 1600-1700 GMT.

The webinar will help you discover more about crossing Biscay with ARC Portugal and the fun and adventure that awaits on this 3 week long cruising rally. Gain an interesting insight to exploring the Portuguese coast, and be inspired to set sail in 2021 or beyond. Practical weather, training and safety advice will be discussed, particularly for those who may be planning to cross the Bay of Biscay for the first time. During the webinar, you'll hear from the rally organisers, our host marina - Marina de Lagos, and previous rally skippers for a presentation and live Question and Answer session all about the rally, the route, and where to cruise on the Algarve coast.

The seminar will have a special emphasis on ARC Portugal, which has run annually for over twenty-five years. The rally departs from Plymouth, UK in June and crosses the Bay of Biscay to Bayona, then cruises south in a series of day sails with stopovers in welcoming marinas along the way to finish in Marina de Lagos a little over three weeks later. This scenic and social rally is credited as much more than a delivery trip to the Algarve - it offers guided visits ashore to explore historic cities, excellent meals with breathtaking views and introducing sailors to life-long cruising friends.
