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”

Exploring Lombok and a light airs start.

After the excitement of welcoming the tow into the anchorage at Gili Gede on Wednesday afternoon it was appropriate that the participants gathered for an informal welcome at the Tamarin Resort, where local dancers performed local traditional dances, and a typical meal of grilled fish or chicken was served. The setting was perfect, with large tables close to the beach, enabling everyone to mix... Click here for more info..

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.

A day in the life on Gili Gede by Andrew Bishop

With an early sunrise it’s tempting to get up and make the most of the days here on Gili Gede, a remote island off the coast of Lombok. Jogging around the island as dawn breaks the island is coming to life; the sun rises very quickly here so it’s not long before the sun is shining and the temperature rising.... more info
