The World ARC 2023/2024


The World ARC

After a particularly enjoyable round the world voyage in 2014, sailing with World ARC for the Pacific legs and then into Asia, Skyelark then sailed the whole way round the world as part of the World ARC 2017/2018. Whilst we set off again in January 2020, COVID-19 chaos stopped us in our tracks in Tahiti. We now plan to go the whole way round in 2023/24 on our wonderful new Oyster 62, Skyelark 2.

We will set off from St Lucia with the World ARC rally in January 2023. The route passes through the Panama Canal and then begins a fantastic cruise through the magical islands of the Pacific...

Why the World ARC?

As part of an organised event everyone taking part benefits from the camaraderie of sharing this unique event with around 30 other yachts. As part of the rally many shoreside activities, tours and parties are included and of course the organisers know all the best anchorages and places to visit.

Each yacht is fitted with a satellite tracker and blogs and photos can be posted on the event website allowing friends and family back home to follow your adventures. On Skyelark 2 we have broken down the trip into legs, each lasting around a month. Some are more cruising orientated, with shorter mileages to cover, some have a combination of longer passages mixed in with shorter cruises, whilst others are full ocean legs.

More details coming soon, but read our World ARC 2017 blogs to learn more about the experience, and contact us if you want to be first in line to reserve your space!
