The race sets off from Las Palmas on the Canary Islands and finishes in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia, requiring the Race4Rene
sailing team to cruise unaided for 2,700 NM across the Atlantic ocean. This will be the crew’s very first ocean crossing and in some cases first sail, competing with experienced racers in one of

experience the rolling Atlantic swells, invariable rain & gusts of up to 30kts. Arriving in St. Lucia will not only be a triumph
