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 - Mauritius Mosaic

The Indian Ocean passage from the Cocos Islands to Mauritius finally took us 18 days as the wind decreased in strength forcing us to motor. It did allow us to fill the freezer with a very nice Mahi, surely one of the most beautiful fish in the read more...


American Spirit II - Day 287; History of Mauritius, 'Story' Party on Celebrate & Dinner on Nexus; Sunday, October 19, 2014

The history of Mauritius goes back to 1505 when the island was discovered by the Portuguese. (1505 is 13 years after Columbus 'discovered' America; to put that date in historical perspective). It was controlled by the Dutch (Holland) in the 1600's read more...


American Spirit II - Day 286; New Auto Pilot Installed, a Visit to a Grocery Store & Dinner with Folie a Deux at an Indian Restaurant; Saturday, October 18, 2014

Jeremy and Joel beat me up today (got up before me, no physical violence). I got up at 8:10 AM. After coffee breakfast followed: ham eaten with BBQ sauce and pita bread; chilled fruit cocktail; and breakfast crackers. I haven't made it to the read more...


American Spirit II - Day 285; A Quiet Day in Mauritius; Friday, October 17, 2014

Woke up at 6:00 AM. At 6:30 AM I started cooking breakfast. Joel and Jeremy get up after me. We're up early because the rigger's coming at 8:00 AM and we have to clear in with Immigration at 8:15 AM. At 7:15 AM Port Security shows up unannounced, read more...


American Spirit II - Day 284; Crisis in the Indian Ocean - Day 12 of 12; & Green Flash No. 22; Thursday, October 16, 2014

Up at 6:45 PM. Relieved Jeremy. Half a moon was still shining; and a lot of stars were out. Even though our watches say its 6:45 AM, that's Cocos Keeling start time. Its really 4:15 AM local time. The wind is 12/15 knots and we're moving at 5.1 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.
John & Jenny Greenwood, sy Tzigane
