Thinking of taking off on the world rally, the Blue Planet Odyssey, from Sydney? Here is an excellent opportunity to learn about the Blue Planet Odyssey from Jimmy Cornell from the comfort of your boat or home. Jimmy Cornell will give a 60-minute webinar to outline the aims of the Blue Planet Odyssey and to report on its progress to date. The webinar will take place on Sunday March 10 at 19:00 GMT, or Monday March 11 07:00 Eastern Australian Summer Time.

The webinar is free of charge but you must register ahead of time. All you need is internet to attend. If you are not able to attend the live webinar, you can still register and watch the video of the webinar at your convenience.

The Blue Planet Odyssey is a round the world sailing event aiming to raise awareness of the global effects of climate change. The event is spearheaded by Jimmy Cornell, founder of the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) and organizer of several other successful international sailing rallies including five round the world events.

This global sailing event will call at some of the most endangered islands: San Blas Islands in the Atlantic Ocean; Tuvalu, Tokelau, Tuamotus, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean; the Maldive and Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean, as well as highlight the effects of climate change on the Arctic icecap, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Galapagos Islands, all of which lie on the Blue Planet Odyssey route.

The route of the Blue Planet Odyssey has been chosen to take advantage of the most favorable weather conditions and to pass through some of the most attractive cruising areas in the world. The route also includes stops or detours to some of the areas where the effects of climate change are already affecting the lives of their populations.

Participants in this global event will be able to start from a port on their own continent or join the event at the nearest point along its route. Blue Planet Odyssey will sail westabout around the world along the classic trade wind route via the Panama Canal and Torres Strait. For those who prefer to sail a more challenging route, there will be the option of a northern route via the Northwest Passage or a southern route via Easter Island.

European participants sailing the Southern Route will start from London in July 2014. On the way to the Canary Islands they will stop at several ports before crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean before continuing to Panama and the Pacific Ocean.

The main route of the Blue Planet Odyssey will be joined at certain points by participants who have started from New York, Miami, Vancouver, San Francisco, San Diego, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Sydney or Shanghai.

In line with the overall aim of the Blue Planet Odyssey, participants are expected to take an active part in some of the projects associated with the event. The Blue Planet Odyssey has met unprecedented success in its first months as over 100 sailors have already pre-registered for the event.

There will be ample time for questions and answers.

The webinar is free but you must register ahead of time at Seven Seas U
