Having enjoyed competing in 8 hugely successful ARCs since 2003 we are planning to take part once again on November 22nd 2015. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime as we take a crew of like minded individuals like yourself, with mixed sailing abilities and experience, who are looking for a new challenge.

We always provide a core of passionate and professional crew who know the yacht inside out and therefore can spend their time teaching, showing and encouraging crew members how to get the best from the boat and to shape the crew into a winning team. 

Heading south from Gran Canaria to ride the trade winds west towards the Caribbean means the ARC is a predominantly downwind race.The voyage will be undertaken on Ocean Venture, our comfortable and fast 60ft Schooner,  and with her design and full compliment of sails there should be no problems with making the most of the wind- We'll be on the beach in St. Lucia in just 13-15 days!

For the last 24 years Windward Sailing has successfully competed in numerous offshore races including the famous Fastnet race, the Three Peaks Challenge, Round Britain & Ireland and of course the ARC itself. Full training will be provided. For further details, click here.
