Split Fleet for World ARC in 2023

The 2023 edition of the rally will have two Caribbean starts in 2023 - the first in early January will be for circumnavigators, boats expecting to complete their round the world voyage in a single circuit of 15 months from the Caribbean to the Caribbean. The second group, the World ARC Pacific fleet, will set off from the Caribbean in mid-February following a similar route through Panama and across the central Pacific islands finishing in late summer in Fiji, Vanuatu or Australia with greater flexibility for onward cruising to New Zealand or northwards to the Solomons. The 2023 routes are both currently fully subscribed, but we are accepting boats onto a waitlist in expectation of confirmed spaces becoming available soon.
