Twenty eight yachts still to arrive

The arrival of Atlantic Rally for Cruisers yachts at St Lucia continues with 186 yachts over the finish line and just 28 still left to arrive. Those that arrived last week have now cast off for a few days to explore a little further south before returning for the prize giving at the weekend.

The crew of Kellsall Suncat, Lady Jane III, have managed to repair their broken chain plate and have put to sea again from the Cape Verdes. They are now set for a Christmas at sea, along with Hallberg Rassy 40, Speranza , another yacht that has recently left from Cape Verdes after repairs.

In the February edition of Yachting Monthly, deputy editor Miles Kendall writes about how there’s nothing to stop any of us crossing the Atlantic.
