Sail-World.com : World ARC - the countdown begins
World ARC - the countdown begins


'Countdown for the World ARC begins'    World Cruising Club ©

The final countdown has begun for the crews of 43 boats who have already joined World ARC in 2014. Several will sail with ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) 2013 to reach the start in Saint Lucia - gaining their sea legs with the Atlantic crossing!

World ARC route -  .. .  
Starting from both 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.

The fleet will depart on 11 January 2014 from Rodney Bay, starting a 15 month circumnavigation that will see them cover some 26,000nm and visit 17 countries along the way.

Crews on board range from just 20 months old to 81 years, and represent 18 different nationalities. By a whisker, Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 39 Saphir is the smallest boat in this year's fleet whilst at the other end of the scale, Tulasi an Amel 64 is the largest and there will be 5 multihulls'.
