World ARC Presentation and Lunch 

Come and meet the World Cruising Club team for lunch and a chat about the World ARC rally.

  • Your chance to meet and discuss the rally in person with the World Cruising Club team.
  • Meet other likeminded cruising sailors and previous rally skippers for lunch, conveniently located for the Southampton Boat Show.

World Cruising Club is hosting a presentation and informal lunch meeting right beside the Southampton Boat Show at the Leonardo Royal Grand Harbour Hotel; your chance to discuss any aspects of the rally face to face, plus meet with other likeminded cruising sailors in a relaxed environment. In addition to updating you on the latest news of the rally, there will be a presentation on the route, safety equipment requirements, and other preparation issues and the team will be pleased to take your questions.

The presentation is free to attend, but spaces are limited, so please do let us know as soon as possible if you would like to join us. And of course, partners and crew members are also welcome, but do please 'add them as guest' when you register.

Thinking of sailing with us around the world? This is what some previous cruisers have said about their rally experience:

"Cocos Keeling - Ohhhh the place gets better and better, The lovely shallow pale blue and turquoise waters, the little sharks, lots of turtles, plus all the land crabs in a hurry to lay their eggs when the full moon comes up tonight.   Paradise, yes this has to be it." 
s/y A Lady (Ireland)

“Again we were greeted by the other World ARC boats that had arrived before us, creating a very special atmosphere of happiness. We had safely passed the Pacific, having friends waiting for us, being part of a community that cares for each other - all with the same interest during these two years of their and our lives”
s/y Ronja, (NOR)

“This island is just where you'd want to be marooned. The soil looks so dark and rich and the trees and plants so green and full. If you ever saw the movie ‘Avatar’ it reminded us of that. The size of some of the trees is just unbelievable. Can you imagine being able to walk along a rim of an active volcano and watching while it erupts?”
s/y Crazy Horse,  (USA)
