The next edition of our annual World ARC circumnavigation sets sail from Saint Lucia in early January 2021, supported by World Cruising Club, using our knowledge gained from delivering a COVID-secure ARC to assist them through the Panama Canal and onwards.

Our small, but committed fleet, are determined to begin the ultimate bluewater adventure across the Pacific in true ARC spirit. It is hoped that pacific nations will begin to welcome marine tourism again during 2021 and we are lucky to have long established relationships with the communities visited in World ARC stopovers to facilitate visits in line with their protocols. Yachts can still join World ARC 2021 for the route from Saint Lucia/Panama to Tahiti. Ask us for more details

Looking ahead to 2022, it will be a bumper fleet joining the circumnavigation and we are at full capacity for those sailing on the 2022-2023 edition with new entries only being accepted onto our Wait List.

If you are still in the planning phase of your round the world voyage, do be sure to register your interest for World ARC 2023 - entries for this edition will open in May 2021.
