After just two months of opening the ARC 2011 entry list, there are now over 100 confirmed entries for the 26th ARC. The limit for 2011 is 225 yachts, and they expect to be fully booked and operating a waiting list by March/April.
Entries range from Maxi 150 Artiste (GER) to the 31.6m Ocean’s Seven (CYM). So far there is good representation from all of the major builders, including X Yachts, Swan, Ovni, Najad, Lagoon, Jeanneau, Hallberg Rassy, Beneteau, Discovery and Amel. There are seven children amongst the confirmed crews and they are wondering if they will we match last year’s record-breaking 30 children.
The multihull entry list is now full, and a waiting list has been started that already contains three catamarans! All yachts on the ARC 2010 waiting list were offered a place at the start.
