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”

Next Step - 28th March 2020 - Almost at Tahiti

Similar to yesterday morning we have had rain storms all around us with lightning and not a lot of wind for a most of the night. It's really not quite what we were expecting of the Pacific Ocean! Throughout the day the sun was hidden behind the read more...

Another relatively quite night with not a lot of wind, so we can expect a very warm day for us today with very few clouds in the sky. Lots of boat chores to do as always, including making water whilst the engine is running. The SSB radio has been a read more...

Cathy Simon - S/V Celebrate
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.
