 it was some of the best offshore sailing I’ve done – really excellent, We were going very fast but the guys were matching our speed.”



ARC Transatlantic Race

This is the bucket list event for many a sailor.              

Its a dream we can turn into a reality.

Join us for the 2018 Arc Transatlantic Race aboard our race prepared yacht Fireball.

We don't just take part we race. We will be in the Racing Division and going flat out to win it. This requires team work, dedication & endurance but fear not we are Anarchy Sailing and we will have a riot on the way.

See the Caribbean Islands appear on the horizon and your reward   will be a great sense of achievement and a massive party waiting onshore.

Although we know some who love this crossing so much they want the sea to roll on forever.

The ARC is an annual event which started as a cruising rally (safety in numbers) and sets off at the best time of year to do it. Warm trade winds push the 200 participating yachts west across a typically peace full ocean. Most of it is downwind so the spinnakers are out and the sea rolls underneath you.  

We are offering places on our Beneteau First 40.7 for the ARC. A performance racer-cruiser which is both competitive & comfortable yacht, ensuring your experience will be second to none.

We will race with a maximum of 6 crew on board, plus skipper and mate. All will get involved as we are sailing as a TEAM. This is not a P&O cruise ship.

ARC Program:

If you can make it we will run a training weekend in the Solent during September so you get to know us, the yacht and your crew mates.

We then sail the yacht to the Canaries as a separate event.

12th November - Join us in Las Palmas up to a week ahead of the race, chill out, party a little at the official reception and impromptu crew events.

17th November is Practice Day

We then finish loading supplies onboard and complete final preparations.

18th November. (Saturday) We have a full safety brief and make sure all are aware of how everything works and what to do incase of an emergency.

19th November (Sunday) The Race starts!

Estimated duration of race 2-3 weeks. You will arrive into Rodney Bay, St Lucia.

On arrival you are welcome to stay onboard while we celebrate an amazing experience under a Caribbean sky in the stunning harbour of Rodney Bay.

Its then time to connect with our flights and head home. But please stay in touch so we can all relive the adventure, share photos, memories, laughs and thrills.

Anarchy Sailing will also hold a reunion sailing weekend back in the Solent towards the end of summer 2018 which all crew will be welcome to join.


Essentially none but there is no getting off once the race starts so common sense means that you must have done some offshore sailing. Alternatively you can join us for one of our RORC races to see if its for you. Otherwise we will train you and get you up to speed so as to make you an effective TEAM member.

Date  Nov 2018

TEAM Anarchy Agenda

We train hard & we will race hard. We insist on having fun.

We treat you as a mate, a TEAM member. Technically your a guest but hopefully you are a new friend for life.

We want you involved, not sitting out on the rail. Yeah, yeah, there will be a bit of that and the skipper will take his turn too. But we share duties and we value your input.

TEAM Anarchy, as it says we are a team.

If you want to feel like an outsider and receive special attention we are not for you.

If you want to be apart of something amazing both on land & sea then give us a call. Chris 07870 403888

She will be presented in Full Metal Jacket mode.
