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