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”

Peaceful Jacare .

On their way for the rendez-vous in Jacare Marina Village in Cabedelo the 10 World ARC boats sailed together from Salvador for a 3 days up wind challenging passage, on arrival participants were happy to get in the quiet little fisherman’s town and tie up onto the pontoon at slack tide to avoid the strong current on the river.   They got welcome by Francis & Nicolas the 2 French...

Lexington - Captain Bob: Georgetown, Grenada

We all went on a rum factory tour today. It was an old rum factory from many years ago. The tour was nice and the tasting was good. An interesting fact the they did not easily admit to was that they make all the rum in Barbados. image1 image2 read more...


Blue Pearl - RCR-Blue Pearl

RCR, yes, that means roller coaster ride, and are we ever on one. Now 700nm from our destination, having sailed for 2240 we are just a few days away from a good night's sleep but the elements are not making it easy on us. The wind is, and will be read more...

Day 1514 March 2018 Wednesday. Weather to look forward to; lowest 24 hr run; Trevor benevolent towards fish; more chafe; slamming main sail blues. It was indeed a quiet night last night with winds ESE 10-12 knots sailing under the poled out genoa read more...


Shepherd Moon - Blue Water Runner comes up trumps

At last, something interesting to write about; I knew we could rely on the Blue Water Runner. We had been making good progress westwards but out track had slipped a little too much to the south. With the wind coming from just north of east, we 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.

Discovering Brazil

While sailing around the world with World ARC, there are two places that have a special prominence along the way: the Caribbean and South America. These are special places because they are the only places that participants will visit twice; at the beginning and at the end of their adventure. Starting in the Caribbean they will of course come back 15 months later where it all started for the finale in Saint Lucia, but on the 1st stop of World ARC participants visited the South American port of Colombia to get a little taste of what this enormous continent has to offer to them. ... more info
