Atlantic Crossing


atlantic crossing

aboard a high-performance catamaran

Between the summer, when Avel Vaez sails in the Mediterranean, and the winter, when she sails in the Caribbeans, our catamaran has to cross the Atlantic Ocean each time. Twice a year, it's a chance to take to the open seas, and make the most of our yacht's impressive capabilities!

From East to West: a popular transatlantic rallye with the ARC 2024

Avel Vaez will cross the Atlantic Ocean for the first time at the end of 2024. Our catamaran will set sail from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on November 24th 2024. And this date wasn't chosen by chance: it's the start date of the renowned Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, or ARC 2024!

Avel Vaez will be the first ORC57 catamaran to take part in the event. It will be accompanied by hundreds of other boats also taking part in the rally. She will head west to the island of Saint Lucia, 2700 nautical miles away...

So, what do you think, will Avel Vaez be the fastest catamaran in the fleet? With an estimated arrival date of December 8, 14 days later, it's a safe bet that our ship will be one of the first...
