If all goes according to plan, we will leave St. Lucia on Saturday January 12 2019 on an eight month journey, ending in Australia in August 2019. Although the World Arc is a circumnavigation rally, we have elected to only do the first half. Around the world in 15 months is just too fast! Having gone to all the trouble of sailing to Australia, we plan on spending a couple of years exploring that part of the world.
The rally schedule is below and here's a link to the rally website: https://www.worldcruising.com/world_arc/event.aspx.
