Your adventure starts here! World ARC is the voyage of a lifetime. A 26,000nm tradewind circumnavigation with our team in every port ensuring a warm welcome. World ARC is a mix of cruising in company and free time to explore. Make a full circumnavigation or sail half a rally. The pace keeps the fleet together, enjoying the shore-side activities as a group, while staying with the best weather. Families with children, retirees or a ‘grown up gap year’ - all are welcome as part of World ARC. Our dedicated rally team ensure you make the most of your time ashore, and provide peace of mind at sea. Starts from Saint Lucia, Panama and Australia.

Noonsite users may be familiar with Yellowbricks from offshore rallies they have participated in, but you might not be aware you can buy a Yellowbrick for your own personal use.

Yellowbrick is not an EPIRB or a PLB; it does not just transmit your position in an emergency, it transmits your position on a regular basis, all the time. Friends and family can see where you are, and where you have been, on your personal web-based map. It is waterproof, rugged, and trusted by virtually all the world's major offshore yachting events.

Yellowbrick is battery powered, and will run for up to 3 months, transmitting hourly. In standby mode it will last for up to a year between charges. It can send and receive short messages via e-mail and SMS, and has an alert button. Running costs are just £8 (US$12) per month plus transmissions, and you only pay when it is being used – you pay nothing when it is not!

Why wait for an emergency to let people know where you are?

Noonsite offer valid until 31 July 2014, saving £50 on every purchase of a Yellowbrick. Click here.
