“The Biggest Transoceanic Sailing Event in World”

From 1986, during the month of November, more than 200 sailing yachts from all over the world, with more than 1000 sailors representing more than 40 nationalities, meet at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to sail together across the Atlantic Ocean towards the Caribbean.

For most of them, this is going to be the great adventure of their lives, the culmination of years of preparation. For others, the crossing represents the annual pilgrimage toward the West Indies, to reencounter the lovely colourful tropical islands where the coconut palm grows, far away from the winter cold which begins to cover Europe. There are also others which see in the ARC, endless days sailing fast downwind, steady surfs over the immensity, living together with the ocean, admiring its greatness from inside, and contemplating with their own eyes its unbelievable inhabitants. Whatever are your reasons, be sure this is a unique experience which you will remember the rest of your life.
Your moment is now.

Our Fast Pogo 12.50, VELOX, is a yacht designed to sail oceans. Is Fast, is Safe and is Comfortable. The lines of VELOX come from the Best Ocean Racing Designs Class 40. Feel the acceleration, surfing easily the large ocean swells, with all the comfort and safety from a boat designed and built especially for this.
