Hello lovely people,
Me and my friends have some bucket listing to check and it turned out that we're very keen on the idea to cross the Atlantic from the Canaries
. We have no sailing experience but we're healthy, diligent, strong physically and mentally young men
that are really quick learners. We watched some videos of people doing exactly this by going to Las Palmas' marina and asking around for a boat
to get them to the Caribbean
Could someone be so kind and shed some light on how to do this properly? We're aware of the risks, discomforts, etc. What we do not know is how would you approach this situation, what gear
we need to have prior to going to Las Palmas
and most importantly what would be the cost of this?
I know that ARC
and ARC+ sailors pay a fee to participate and if they want to share this fee it would probably be better to look for a boat
that's just crossing the pond without participating in the event.
Any opinions would be very helpful! Thanks in advance!
