on . Posted in Competitor Information


The RORC Transatlantic Race will begin from Puerto Calero Marina on 9th january 2021


Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa and part of the province of Las Palmas.  The volcanic island has a stunning variety of landscapes including sandy beaches, rocky coastline, mountain ranges and even a desert. 


Puerto Calero marina, positioned in a naturally protected enclave on Lanzarote’s sheltered south coast, has earned a reputation as one of the world’s top sailing destinations while retaining a characteristic village-type atmosphere.  Well-regarded restaurants quietly line the waterfront and onsite services include a boatyard, shops, car and bike hire .

Yacht Services

Fuel Dock

Puerto Calero offers a fuelling service from the fuel dock located at the end of the breakwater with opening hours from 8.30 – 19:40 every day. If for any reason the attendant is not on the pontoon, please call on VHF ch.09 for service. Payment can be made in cash or by credit card. Bunkers can be arranged for yachts needing large quantities of fuel; please contact the Marina Office for more information.

Shipyard Facilities

With hoisting facilities that include a giant 820-tonne travel lift, over 20,000m² of yard area, two deep keel pits and a range of specialist services, Calero Marinas offers the first refit and repair service of its kind in the Canaries. 

Ideally positioned en route from Europe to the Caribbean, Calero Marinas in Lanzarote are clearly the primary point of call for yachts requiring maintenance and repairs in the Canaries.

With a gentle and temperate year-round climate, protected from major weather systems, accessing the marinas is easy throughout the year. The scant annual rainfall presents a welcome advantage for completing painting or lengthy varnishing jobs.

The island’s strong maritime heritage and experienced yard team of labourers and specialists has produced an efficient and professional service, much appreciated by those with little time to spare before having to move on.

Both Marina Lanzarote and Puerto Calero have yards with significant hoisting capacities, space for hard standing and storage and a good range of reliable services.
