World ARC

Starting from Saint Lucia and Australia, World ARC is the voyage of a lifetime. A 26000 NM tradewind circumnavigation with our team in every port ensuring a warm welcome.
World ARC is a mix of cruising in company and free time to explore. Make a full circumnavigation or sail half a rally. The pace keeps the fleet together, enjoying the shore-side activities as a group, while staying with the best weather. Families with children, retirees or a ‘grown up gap year’ - all are welcome as part of World ARC. Our dedicated rally team ensure you make the most of your time ashore, and provide peace of mind at sea.
“Bill and I will remember this trip every day of our lives. It has been a life changing experience”

Free & BrEasy - Dancing with High's and Low's

To safely sail the 850 nm from Richards Bay to Cape down requires a new skill: learning to dance with the weather systems! The good guy is the Indian Ocean High pressure system which sends winds from the North East, down the South African east read more...


Nexus - Rainy day in Port Elizabeth, leaving for St Francis Bay

It's been a welcome rest in Port Elizabeth as it has rained all night, but we are tied to a horrible fishing peer with tires pushing our fenders aside, so we need to get out of here! The marina is old and the slips are in poor condition and only read more...


American Spirit II - Day 321; Sailing to Port Elizabeth in the Aghulas Current with a 4.7 Knot Current; Saturday, November 22, 2014

Relieved Jeanine at 6:00 AM. The wind was 3/5 knots and we were moving at 7.4 knots thru the water and 9.3 knots over the land. Low overcast clouds. The shoreline was visible to starboard, 13 miles away. Cliffs or sand dunes. Swells on the port read more...


American Spirit II - Day 322; Arriving at Port Elizabeth in Heavy Fog & the Hydro Generator is Damages; Sunday, November 23, 2014

As I indicated in the previous log, I stayed up at midnight with Jeanine for the 12:00 AM to 3:00 AM watch. Too much going on for anyone other than Joel or me to deal with. No offense to Jeanine. Reef, jibe and collisions. At 1:15 AM the wind is read more...


Celebrate - Three oceans in three days

Early this morning we rounded Cape Agulhas the Southern most point in Africa and then at around 11AM in blue skies and a following strong breeze we sailed round the Cape of Good Hope. The best sailing of our passage by far. So after the Indian and read more...

It was the trip of a lifetime. Many thanks to World ARC and its personnel who made this possible.
Steve Spracher, sy Southern Cross
World ARC has been so worthwhile and terrific value for money. You have a brilliant support team and they all do their jobs so efficiently. At the official stop-overs, Paul and Suzana were always waiting on the dock to take our lines, whatever the time of day or night and Paul was great at organising people to come and fix Tzigane. We would never have contemplated a trip like this without an organised rally. World ARC too has provided great parties and get-togethers.
