Bay of Biscay Crossing

Please consider joining our Bay of Biscay Crossing if you’d like to join the boat in the UK and continue on to the legs below. 

Leg 1 - 20th-26th Sept 2024Spain to Gibraltar

The first leg leaves A Coruña and takes the boat along the Portuguese coast to Gibraltar

Leg 2 - 27th Sept-8th Oct 2024Gibraltar to Malta

One of our longer sails, this is an excellent way to gain miles in a short period of time

Leg 3 - 27th Oct-5th Nov 2024 Malta to Gibraltar

This is a challenging leg that takes you along the North African Coast, you’ll most likely experience all kinds of sailing conditions from being becalmed to strong winds and big seas. 

Although it is not a planned stop, due to weather conditions the crew needed to stop in Algeria last year. Without anyone having a visa, the crew were not allowed to leave a small area of the marina. They made the most out of the situation, ordering pizza and playing touch rugby! This year, we will have either the skipper or an apprentice on board with a visa so they can make any supply runs necessary. It is not necessary for crew members to get this visa, but worth looking into. 

Leg 4 -6th-12th Nov 2024Gibraltar to Las Palmas

Our most popular leg, this normally downwind sail gives you champagne sailing conditions and a perfect way to get to the ARC start line.
