I have now found one Hanse 470 who is sailing ARC. Right now they are in the middle.

Henrick
Surely the point of it all is to finish it off
if you do not sail home you have given up half way & I would feel I have cheated myself
The point of the crossing in a group is to give you confidence & build experience
Then you go it alone for the return trip - but you can join a group back I believe
 
I suppose it depends on why you want to do it in the first place & I wonder if those talking about it really know what they want to do it for
 
I expect a lot want to do it because it is the one trip on everyone's lips so it is the " in thing"
Is it to be able to say " I have crossed the Atlantic in my own boat" & hope people look at you in awe
is it to build experience for longer trips
Is it to find out what it is like to do a long sea journey
Is it to see St Lucia & cruise that part of the world
Is it to get the buzz of seeing the islands appear over the horizon after 2 weeks at sea. I am sure we all love that " there it is " feeling & it is like a drug. The further & more difficult the trip the bigger the buzz - Until it wears off & you need another injection
Is it to find out if you can actually survive a long sea trip without site of land
Is it just to enter a race & see if you can beat anyone with a bigger boat than you
 
Ever since I was young & read about the AZAB & I have dreamed of doing that. The ARC came later
I think that the AZAB would tick all the boxes without crossing the atlantic-- or would it
I do not know but at least I would do the return trip to complete the experience. That's if I am still healthy enough when the next one comes around

Simon, Many thanks for your words, they are very thought provoking, but I will have to work had on my wife to convince her, Wink.
 
I must admit, the 301 is a tough little yacht, and it is a shame that hanse no longer do a good entry level yacht anymore.....
Henrik, yes there is a return ARC ( ARC Europe, i believe), or you could do the ARC, then sell your Hanse and buy another on your return.......
Big smile

      What a wonderful idea Henrik. The thought of someone paying me to go to America and then pay me again to sail a fully provisioned Hanse for a month or two is very attractive. Keep in touch.

Hi.
I will take the cheapest way to get her home. So if you are cheaper than what it costs to ship her home, you are welcome to sail her home to Sweden.
 
If i only got the time i would sail her myself.

Samuels thoughts on why people sail the ARC, had me thinking that someone else had writain some similar lines.




IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

So come on forum members
Why would YOU want to do the ARC????
Other than have some time to learn some poetry - And that is not such a bad reason in itself!!

Why so negative?
I will do it because it is a challenge and then have some great sailing in the caribic archipelago.

In your way of thinking, you probably only sail one hour trips before you got bored.
