The 29th Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) set sail on Monday bound for Saint Lucia following a delayed start due to strong winds locally in the harbour of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on Sunday.

For only the third time in the rally's history, the decision was made to delay the start, initially planned for 12:30 on Sunday 23 November by 20 hours.

The ARC 2014 fleet remained in port for an extra night, and were greeted Monday morning with a fine North Eastern breeze providing a swift departure for the first part of the passage across the Atlantic.

In total, 176 boats and 1020 people, including 27 children under age 16, are sailing with the route directly to Saint Lucia in this year's edition of the popular trans ocean rally.
