The Oyster World Rally is regarded as the world's most iconic round the world rally.

A 27,000-mile, 16-month adventure, stopping at some of the world's most remote locations, sharing the journey with an international fleet of Oyster Yachts, while fully supported by the Oyster Rally Technical team.

So, when in 2013, Formula One supremo Eddie Jordan, decided to take part in the very first Rally with his new Oyster 885, Lush, he created memories to last a lifetime in what he quotes as being the most 'amazing trip of his life'.

'Eddie Jordan's Voyage of a Lifetime' is now being made into a new four-part series to celebrate 50 years of Oyster Yachts and mark the tenth anniversary of the Oyster World Rally. In it Jordan relives his world rally and looks to inspire others to take on this round-the-world voyage.

Each episode takes the viewer deep into his journey, from the initial decision to take part in the first ever Oyster World Rally and his choice of an Oyster 885, the start in Antigua, to exploring the Caribbean's paradise atolls and an exhilarating crossing of the Panama Canal. The series continues with a look at the diverse wildlife of the Galapagos Islands and the best places to visit in French Polynesia, and concludes with Jordan's stand out moments sailing off Indonesia and Cape Town.

With the fourth Oyster World Rally due to start in January 2024, this series offers a unique behind the scenes look at one person's experience and their adventure of a lifetime.

The first episode is available to view here and sign up here to view future episodes.
