World Cruising Club has announced a new U.S. departure port for their transatlantic rally to Europe, ARC Europe. Convenient for boaters in the Chesapeake and New England, Hampton, VA will be the home for ARC Europe yachts starting in the USA before their departure to Bermuda, the Azores and on to Europe on May 6, 2011.

Hampton Public Piers has a great location in historic downtown Hampton and full facilities for blue water boaters. See www.downtownhampton.com for more information.

ARC Europe allows yachts to sail to Europe at the end of the Caribbean season as part of a fun rally while enjoying some memorable stops along the way. The other departure port will be Tortola BVI and the fleets will rendezvous after the first leg in Bermuda. They will then cross the Atlantic to sail and explore the Azores archipelago. The fleet reaches the European continent in June in time for the European sailing season, whether north to the U.K. or into the Mediterranean.
