For the 13th consecutive year, Lagoon is proud to be one of the official partners of the ARC 2018. This year, the race was particularly turquoise with 19 Lagoon models taking part, out of 33 multihulls.
Participants started crossing the finish line on 8th December 2018. Results came out on 22nd December and… Lagoon is delighted to announce that the victory was awarded to a Lagoon 42 who arrived in first position in adjusted time among all the contestants! This win further proves Lagoon catamarans' high-sea qualities and their performance in real situations on the long run.
The Lagoon dealer in Poland (Dobre Jachty company), Jarek Clopek and his crew took the start of the ARC on "Ice Cat", a Lagoon 42, for the third year in a row, last November. She won yet again, facing the 32 other multihull boats involved in the race, including some from competing shipyards who are apparently more efficient than Lagoons... The exceptional champion on board his 42 signed his and Lagoon's name once again in the history of the ARC race, so popular in the entire world!
The Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) is a race organised between Las Palmas in the Canaries and Saint Lucia. The ARC+ is another race taking place alongside the ARC but via Cape Verde. This year Lagoon was also on the podium of the ARC+ with Skyfall1 (Lagoon 450) and Starship Friendship (Lagoon 42) who both arrived first, in adjusted time. Both rallies are open to all kinds of sailors. The ARC team provides navigators with a safe and secure environment to cross the Atlantic in excellent conditions. This race is highly appreciated by "transat" newbies. It is also an unmissable event for seasoned sailors who particularly enjoy the warm atmosphere of the ARC and attempt to break speed records each year!
Congratulations to all the race contestants!
