Weeks after bringing the curtains down on what the St Lucia Tourist Board has dubbed a highly successful 2014 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC), the sun drenched Caribbean island of Saint Lucia is again getting ready to bid bon voyage to close to two dozen yachts participating in the World ARC 2015-16.

Unlike its affiliated ARC-branded sailing events, namely ARC Plus and the traditional ARC, World ARC both begins and ends on Saint Lucia.

Having moved from a bi-annual to now an annual event, World ARC, which involves the circumnavigation of the globe, will begin its 2015-16 season from the IGY Rodney Bay Marina on the morning of Saturday, January 10th, 2015 and will see the fleet of 22 vessels retuning to the island in April of 2016.    

Like the ARC+ and the traditional ARC, the island, via the Saint Lucia Tourist Board, is providing technical and logistical support towards the hosting of World ARC 2015-16.

Meanwhile the World ARC 2014-15 adventure began on Saint Lucia in early January of last year, when the fleet crossed the start line and headed south to Panama and the gateway to the Pacific Ocean. Over the last eight months the rally has visited some of the most idyllic blue water cruising destinations, and will end in Saint Lucia in April 2015.
