ARC RACE Gran Canaria to St.Lucia – Start on November 22nd

The additional challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic have of course changed things this year, but the vibrant mood and palpable excitement of departure day was as evident as it has been throughout the rally’s 35-year history and the ocean beckoned for the eager sailors to begin their adventure to Saint Lucia.

Three Swan yachts graced the starting line, all competing in Cruising I Class:

  • Swan 65 BLUE MAGIC
  • Swan 48 S&S MONTANA
  • Swan 66 SALPARE

According to our live updates, Swan 65 Blue Magic has already passed halfway and is leading the cruising class with a good marginal and also in good positions overall.

Samuli Salanterä, Nautor’s Swan Board Member and Commodore of the Yacht Club Turku (FIN), is joining Blue Magic crew.

Waiting for December 19th for the final prize-giving. Fair winds to all the participants!
