Company details


World Cruising Club organises ocean sailing events around the world.  The rallies are devised for the 'average' cruising boat and crew; helping people to realise their dream of making a long offshore passage.

The company was formed by Jimmy Cornell following the success of the very first ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) transatlantic rally in 1986.  Since Jimmy's retirement in 1998, the company has been run by Andrew Bishop.

World Cruising Club has a portfolio of sailing rallies that take place every year:
  • ARC & ARC+ Cape Verdes
  • ARC Europe
  • ARC Portugal
  • World ARC
  • ARC Caribbean 1500
  • ARC Bahamas
  • ARC DelMarVa
  • ARC Pacific
  • ARC Baltic
  • Malts Cruise
For people planning an ocean voyage, World Cruising Club provides advice and training in the form of two-day seminars in the UK and USA, and short question and answer sessions at major boat shows.
