Leisure activities at the ARC

The Sports Harbour Business Association of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria would like to welcome the sailing crews for ARC 2012, with a programme of activities organized around the capital’s Marina.

Our first date is the “Happy Hour at the LPA Marina”, prepared for both sailing crews and clients of the restaurants in the area. For the whole of November, and from 12.00 to 13.00 hrs, visitors to the capital’s Sports Harbour have the chance to enjoy a 2 for 1 promotion in different drinks (varying according to each establishment).

Great cuisine also has its space, thanks to "the seafood brochette at the LPA Marina', including an appetizer of octopus, squid, tuna, prawns and sea bass, for a very reasonable €2, along with a glass of beer, every weekend during the month of November.
