RORC Transatlantic Race

Saturday 9th January 2021

ANARCHY  &  THE TRANSATLANTIC

This won't be our first Atlantic crossing as previously we have chosen to 

do the WCC ARC Race.

This will be our first RORC Transatlantic. 

Whats the difference between them?

Well the ARC across the Atlantic is geared up for the cruising sailor although it does have a racing division. The RORC Transatlantic race however attracts more serious sailors who genuinely want to race a cross.

With the RORC moving the start date from November to January the race will pick up more consistent Tradewinds and allow us the opportunity for a longer stopover in the Canaries for yacht preparation. Including a lift scrub and re-antifoul at a lower cost than we would pay in the Caribbean. 

An Atlantic crossing does seem quite daunting but the reality is its an easy passage. Down hill pretty much all the way, in fact we didn't beat once on the last passage with only a broad reach as we approached the finish line.

You will get tired and the watch system will leave you with sleep deprivation, which means that you will get a bit moody at some point but we all do and we all get over it. 

The reward however is an immense sense of achievement, you can't really explain it. You just cant stop grinning for days, weeks. 

As you would expect from an offshore event organised by the RORC safety standards are high which means we issue each crew member with a personal  AIS MOB Beacon, onboard satellite communications onto of the statutory safety kit already onboard.

Crew will be required to have completed 500Nm of offshore racing or an equivalent passage.

This we can provide by you either joining us in the UK for some RORC racing this summer,  or participate in our Raid from Gibraltar to  Lanzarote in November. All including within our cost.

Therefore before you commit book one of our RORC offshore events with us and if you remain committed then we will deduct the cost off your  Transatlantic fee.

We will also. need you to hold a  RYA/ISAF or equivalent Sea Survival certificate not included in our package but easily obtainable with courses all over the UK and most countries with a strong sailing culture. In the UK the course is usually two days costing between £200 -£260. We can arrange this for you.

HOW TO BOOK

Well as you are reading this you must have a Computer, Tablet or a Smartphone or some magical device we are oblivious too.

So given your a tech wizard try one of these:

EMAIL:    skipper@anarchysailing.co.uk

PHONE:  +44(0)77870403888

 

We genuinely discourage the use of Semaphore (waving flags around), morse code by lamp or telegraph, Smoke Signals, Chinese Whispers or "my mates ask me to ask you"

Or use our carefully crafted form below and we will get back to you.

Please Note

By the nature of our business we are often on the water and don't man a full time office. Once about 5-10 miles offshore telephone signal is at best poor.

We therefore can't always provide an immediate response but we do promise to get back to you. We want your custom.

Anarchy Sailing is about fun first.

That said we love to race and we love to beat our rivals.

Each year we invest more into our yachts.

Sails, sail configuration to optimise performance against rating.

Smoother hull, new electronics and all kit replace when needed including halyards, sheets etc. 

We will always present the yacht in the best possible condition so there are no excuses on the water.

Ultimately we are a TEAM and regardless of your previous experience you will become a key member of the TEAM.
