After an exciting end to the ARC 2017, the Peters & May team has returned back to the UK Head Office having attended both the pre-event in Las Palmas and the post-rally finishing line in St Lucia.
In the days leading up to what was an enthralling start to the Race in Las Palmas, P&M representatives had the opportunity to meet many of the crews through a variety of organised events, holding a short presentation on ‘What goes into shipping your yacht back from the Caribbean’, followed later by the hugely successful Peters & May sponsored Sundowner Happy Hour. Several weeks later the highly-anticipated rally finish in sunny St Lucia and Peters & May would like to congratulate all participants who safely navigated the crossing.
In both Las Palmas and St Lucia, Peters & May were proud to be able to provide expert knowledge and guidance on bespoke shipping solutions with a special focus on the company’s mast up shipping service. Having partnered with the World Cruising Club for over 11 years, Peters & May are proud to have met and continue to work with many ARC participants to help them plan the next stage of their yachts journey once the East to West Transatlantic crossing has ended.
Jack McCarthy commented “The ARC is a particular highlight in our calendar as it is fantastic opportunity to speak directly to participants so we can fully understand their needs and expectations. At Peters & May, we’re proud to be able to provide a bespoke solution to ship them back home across the Atlantic after this exciting rally has finished. The ARC Rally is such a well organised event with friendly comradery between crews. I would certainly recommend anyone who loves sailing to get involved in future ARC Rally’s. The atmosphere in both in Las Palmas and St Lucia is always exciting and anticipation around the rally is always high – we’re already looking forward to the ARC 2018!”
