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”

TESTIMONIALS
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.
Steve Rodwell, sy Kasuje
It was the trip of a lifetime. Many thanks to World ARC and its personnel who made this possible.

What’s In a Name?

The final countdown has begun for the crews of 28 boats starting World ARC in 2019. The 15 month circumnavigation will see them cover some 26,000nm and visit 19 countries but the rally is about more than simply sailing around the world visiting amazing places; it’s about the people and the boats sailing together. Crews on board cover range of ages, nationalities, backgrounds and aspirations but all share an adventurous spirit. Equally the boats that will take them around the world are a mix of catamarans and monohulls, old boats with thousands of miles under the keel and new designs freshly delivered from the factory.
