Atlantic Rally for Cruisers for a large-scale sea trial


The First Aureus XV absolute, “Zig Zag Wanderer” will sail across the atlantic in November joining the 2012 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, better known as the ARC.

This year’s edition will start, as always from Las Palmas, on November 25th, for a 2.600 Nautical miles navigation to Rodney Bay – Saint Lucia.

It’s a perfect event to enjoy a great experience of sailing for 2 weeks across the Atlantic and reveal the full potential of the Aureus XV Absolute. The very light weight of the yacht, due to its carbon/epoxy hull and deck, carbon mast and boom, together with its D4 vectran sails should make the crossing fast and sensational.

I will join the crew to make sure we seize this amazing opportunity to improve the Aureus XV again and hopefully find out new ways to deliver wild sensations on our Compact Maxi Yacht.

260 sailing yachts, big or small, monohulls or catamarans, are engaged and the rally is an opportunity to meet other passionate people while racing in a fun spirit for around 15 days. The arrival in Saint Lucia in early December should be spectacular.

I’ll try to post regularly to share this experience.

We will also organize a few sea trials of the Aureus XV in Saint-Lucia. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to join us there for a sea-trial.

Thanks for reading this blog, Aurelien.
