World ARC is a round-the-world adventure taking place over 15 months and covering 26,000 nautical miles. Following the classic tradewinds route, the rally avoids regions of political instability, piracy and the storm seasons in both hemispheres.
Will I be able to book my trip cheaper if I go to the operator directly?
No, not at all. At the time you book you’ll be paying the best price possible.
How do I get there?
Each trip listing gives advice on how to get to and from your adventure. Usually, any travel to and from the vessel is your responsibility; we’ve teamed up with a global travel operator to make this easier for you. If you are unsure of anything regarding travel, please contact us to help you.
Do I need specialist sailing insurance?
Generally yes, but we recommend checking with your current travel insurer. We can also direct you to appropriate insurers who will be able to provide the right cover. Contact us for our recommendations.
Can I bring a hard suitcase?
Ideally not. Space on boats is always limited and you don’t want to end up sharing you bunk with your suitcase! Soft luggage such as duffel bags and rucksacks are your best bet.
