Sailing across the Atlantic

Sailing across the Atlantic is an adventure that many people dream of. It doesn't have to be just a dream, sail across the Atlantic with More Sailing without having to own a boat or take responsibility for an entire crew. Sail across the Atlantic with us and be part of an experience you will never forget.

You can feel safe because there is both a responsible skipper and an assistant skipper on board. We sail across the Atlantic during November-December every year, when the conditions for Atlantic sailing are at their best.

Do you dream of sailing across the Atlantic?

Take the chance to realize the dream of sailing across the Atlantic with More Sailing. Every year for over 10 years, we have been sailing several sailboats to the Caribbean. We offer a carefree and safe way to realize the dream of sailing across the Atlantic. All our boats we sail over have both a responsible skipper and an assistant skipper on board. Book anything from a place on board up to a whole boat if you are a larger group. This allows you to sail across the Atlantic without owning your own boat. You also don't have to do all the planning and preparation for the trip.

We participate in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers

We participate in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, also known as ARC. The ARC is a friendly race or squadron sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. Each year between 200 and 300 boats participate, including both family sailors and racers. The ARC starts from Gran Canaria at the end of November each year. All boats then reunite on the other side of the Atlantic, on the island of St. Lucia. The Atlantic race ends with an awards ceremony and party on St. Lucia just before Christmas. ARC is organized by the World Cruising Club, which organizes several different sailing trips around the world, all boats that want to participate in their event must meet their safety restrictions and before the start, a check is made by representatives of the World Cruising Club. Sailing many boats at the same time provides a sense of security and it is common for people to help each other if a boat is damaged or needs assistance during the voyage.

A week before you set sail from Gran Canaria, the entire crew gathers to sail together. The event starts with an opening ceremony and is followed by lectures and festivities throughout the week. During this week you will meet excited sailors from all over the world. On board the boat, you will also get to know each other and the boat, as you all prepare, shop and cook all the food for the voyage together. During the week in Las Palmas you also practice maneuvers and test sail the boat together.

How long does it take to sail across the Atlantic?

It's hard to say how long it will take to sail across the Atlantic. Which is perhaps part of the excitement of the Atlantic adventure. The length of the crossing can vary, partly because weather conditions differ from year to year. The length of the voyage is also influenced by the goals and conditions of the crew on board. In previous years we have sailed across the Atlantic, the voyage has usually taken between two and three weeks to complete.

Expect the whole adventure to take about five weeks from the inauguration in Gran Canaria. You have accommodation on the boat throughout. You'll spend the first week in Las Palmas preparing. After crossing the Atlantic, the boat will sail further north in the Caribbean. After five weeks of adventure, you can proudly walk around in a pair of red pants (it is said that only those who have crossed the Atlantic are allowed to wear red pants).
