Yachting Monthly Rally Portugal is filling up

The 12th Yachting Monthly Rally Portugal is rapidly filling up.

The ever-popular event leaves Plymouth on 3 June 2007.

The smallest yacht so far signed up is an Alan Pape designed 32-footer. The first multihull to sign up is a 38ft Fountaine Pajot catamaran. Twenty yachts are expected to join the cruise to the Algarve.

The event is organised by the World Cruising Club, which also runs the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC).

This is a friendly, fun and relaxed event which offers a safety back-up when crossing the Bay of Biscay, plus the convenience of day hops down Portugal’s fascinating coast.

The cost is £500 per boat (up to 43ft). Crew pay an additional £225 per person.
