Follow the start and progress of the 2012 ARC with updates by senior editor Meredith Laitos, on location in Gran Canaria. Brought to you by SAIL and the World Cruising Club.
After sailing 1,500 miles from Hampton, Virginia to Nanny Cay, Tortola, 175 sailors have completed the 2012 Caribbean 1500. Docked in Nanny Cay Marina, they’ve celebrated with family barbeques, trophies and plenty of parties.
World Cruising Club announced this week that Portsmouth, VA, will be the new home port for all WCC sailing rallies held on the East Coast of the USA, including the Caribbean 1500, the ARC Bahamas and the ARC Europe.
When I asked Dr. Wayne Andersen why he has sailed his tricked-out Moody 54 Habits of Health in the Caribbean 1500 rally four years in a row, his answer made me smile.
