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”

Niue Knocks It Out Of The Park.

The small South Pacific island of Niue which, despite its size of just 100 square miles, packs a punch as being the world’s largest raised coral atoll.   Its rugged terrain, limestone formation and the lack of beaches, has earned this gem of an island a nickname of “The Rock”.   With just 17 mooring buoys in Alofi Bay, the World ARC fleet split into two groups - arriving 72...

How to Crew in the ARC

The 2024 editions of the ARC and ARC Plus rallies are rapidly approaching with over 250 boats carrying 1500 aspiring ocean sailors ready to check off their transatlantic “bucket list” item. The dream of endless days, each becoming warmer and nonstop downwind sailing has quite an appeal, so we are often asked how do you find a boat to sail on.
