ARC founder Jimmy Cornell is not one to rest on his laurels. He has come up with a new transatlantic rally exclusively for cruising multihulls.

The Multi Transat will start from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, on November 12, and finish in Barbados. It is open to production cats and tris between 40ft and 65ft LOA, which will compete in classes according to size and design.

The finish of the event coincides with the festivities marking the 50th anniversary of Barbados’s independence from England, so a good time for all is assured. For more information, go to cornellsailing.com.
