In 1986 the World Cruising Club was born with the first-ever ocean crossing rally, the ARC.
As the world's leading sailing rally specialist, the World Cruising Club has nine distinct rallies taking place every year - ARC, World ARC, Caribbean 1500, ARC Europe, ARC Portugal, ARC USA, ARC Baltic, ARC DelMarVa and the Malts Cruise.
The World Cruising Club now helps more than 450 boats and 1,200 people to achieve their sailing dreams every year. From round-the-world adventures and ocean crossings, to social cruising and island hopping, there is something for everyone.
Peters & May has supported the World Cruising Club for over ten years offering participants a wide range of global shipping solutions from the Caribbean as an alternative way to return to Europe and beyond.
In 2015 Peters & May expanded its port options to include Antigua due to it being the sailing hub of the Caribbean, which led to over 100 yachts, many of which were ARC participants, departing Antigua over four vessels.
Peters & May has supported World Cruising Club participants for over a decade, providing shipping options for our participants. This proactive development is most welcome and we look forward to working alongside them to further expand ports and route options globally.
