We are a couple who participated in the ARC+ in 2016. We had the pleasure of joining the rally with our new Lagoon 450. Our boat named Sea to Sky took second place in multi hulls. After spending the winter in the Caribbean we laied-up the boat up in Florida for the hurricane season which as we all know was terrible. As a result we ended up selling to an owner who lost his. Anyway short story long, we are interested in redoing the ARC either as crew or as a delivery crew. My partner and I could possibly persuade my 29 year old son who has 8 years experience captaining in the med to join.
