Welcome to the World Cruising Club
Your adventure starts here!
World Cruising Club is the world's leading sailing rally specialist, with seven distinct rallies taking place every year. From round-the-world adventures and ocean crossings, to social cruising and island hopping.
World Cruising Club was born with the very first ARC in 1986, the first-ever ocean crossing rally. We now help more than 450 boats and 1200 people to achieve their sailing dreams every year. Some of our rallies are big on fun and big on people, others are more intimate. Whatever their size, our rallies all adhere to the original ethos of safe and social cruising.
Our rally teams are all keen to ensure that everyone has a great time ashore and afloat; we know that rallies are more than simply sailing.
