Australia 2022 – optimism for September Start
There are encouraging signs that Australia’s maritime boarders will open sufficiently by late summer to allow the rally to proceed as planned from Darwin in September this year. The route continues across the Indian Ocean, via South Africa and Brazil to finish in the Caribbean in April ’23. A limited number of spaces on the rally are likely to be open to new joiners.
Split Fleet for World ARC in 2023
The 2023 edition of the rally will have two Caribbean starts in 2023 – the first in early January will be for circumnavigators, boats expecting to complete their round the world voyage in a single circuit of 15 months from Caribbean to Caribbean. The second group, the World ARC Pacific fleet, will set off from the Caribbean in mid-February following a similar route through Panama and across the central Pacific islands finishing in late summer in Fiji, Vanuatu or Australia with greater flexibility for onward cruising to New Zealand or northwards to the Solomons.
The 2023 routes are currently fully subscribed, but we are accepting boats onto a wait list in expectation of confirmed spaces becoming available soon.
