So far 24 yachts have entered!

Reservations and entries are coming through strongly for World ARC 2012 and we expect at least 30 boats to be joining us in Saint Lucia in January 2012 for the first leg of this round-the-world adventure. 24 yachts are now either confirmed or have paid a deposit. Some yachts will be joining us for the whole circumnavigation, others leaving or joining in Australia for a half rally. Don't forget there is still time to take advantage of the early booking discount!

We are pleased to welcome two families with children to the fleet, as well as early retirees and people taking a sabattical. The 2012 fleet includes production boats from Beneteau, Jeanneau, X-Yachts and Lagoon, as well as Oyster, Amel and traditional cruising yachts.
