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”

Nexus - Slow...Slow...Slow day

Well that's our first 100nm day, and our lesson in patience is continuing. We're running the motor for a while today to charge the batteries and regroup a little with the others as we've spread out over the night with some motor sailing and some read more...


American Spirit II - Day 387; Still Motoring and We Record Our 5th Green Flash Sunrise (No. 35 Overall); and a Green Flash Sunset (No. 36); Wednesday, January 28,2015

Up at 5:50 AM for my 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM watch. Conditions are good for a sunrise green or blue flash, so Jeanine stays up with me instead of going to bed like she normally does after her 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM watch. I put a fish line in the water; read more...


Nexus - A Lesson in Patience

The wind left us for a while last night, dropping to less than 8kts. For different reasons we were mostly all awake in the middle of the night, so we took the sail down and motored for a while. We put her back out this morning when the wind seemed read more...

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
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.
Steve Rodwell, sy Kasuje
