Hello Torsand and welcome aboard.

You might get a bit more response if you can be more specific. A straight run from scandinavia to the Canaries is 3-4 weeks non-stop. Perhaps if you can provide a few more details

Not meaning to question your trip planning, but Gilbratar is a 3-4 day sail from Cabo San Vicente. So it is a long run in and then a long run out again.

A run from Cuxhafen to Sagres is something like 2-3 weeks (all depending on wind/weather). Cuxhafen to La Corana is maybe 10 days.

But there are a lot of "ifs" in there. General wisdom says that the latest time to cross the Biscay is end august/ very early September or else you might get hit by autumn storms.

I think you might want to study the weather patterns before making further plans. If you have no other resources, Cornell World Crusing Routes can help a bit.

Personally, I'd leave to cross the Biscay no later than end August and try to get down the coast of Portugal. Weather permitting, I'd lay over in Porto, Figuero da Foz, Lisbon to see the sights. Then I would take R&R in Sagres for a few days (nothing to do there, but you can rent a car and drive around a bit.

The strike out for the canaries. This will put you in the canaries early or mid october. Just in time for a long vacation before setting out on the ARC.

But you do need to do some more detailed planning on this.

Re: ARC 2015

And I guess another question

You say "I'm looking for someone to sail my boat from southern scandiavia to the canaries - so are you looking for adelivery skipper? or crew (meaning you will be sailing yourself and just need crew).

Is this a paid position?

I might be interested, so if you want you can PM me with the details

Carsten. I am grateful for all the advise i can get. But if I shall pay the entrancefee to the ARC+ i must be sure to get my boat as Close as possible Before the jump over to the Canaries.

Re: ARC 2015

Also take a look at the Atlantic odyssey instead of the arc, highly recommended with lots of route options.
