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”

Just a short note to express our gratitude and thanks for the terrific service we are enjoying from you and your staff. I had little idea what to expect being fairly new to this sailing lark, and we blindly paid in advance trusting that you would deliver. You certainly have done! Whilst, we were building our businesses, we had many sayings and quotes and one of my favourites was always to exceed your client’s expectations no matter how high or low. You have certainly achieved that for us and we do thank you.
