ARC Caribbean 1500

Thinking of sailing south this autumn? Come and join the fleet as we head off towards the warmer climates of the Caribbean!

North America’s longest running sailing rally will start from the Chesapeake Bay at Spring Cove Marina, Solomons MD.

The rally supports crews with their pre-departure preparations by holding a series of seminars and social activities before the start, allowing participants to get to know one another and feel the camaraderie of sailing the offshore passage together.

Safety requirements and inspections ensure that fleet are well equipped for the 1500nm sail across the Gulf Stream and those new to distance cruising feel reassured under World Cruising Club’s stewardship.

The arrival of the Caribbean 1500 will once again be hosted by Nanny Cay Marina in Tortola. World Cruising Club are delighted to be back at Nanny Cay, and are looking forward to a warm Caribbean welcome as the Caribbean 1500 fleet once again calls this atmospheric marina its home after a year away in 2020.

The rally is open to yachts 35′ and up. On average, yachts take along four crew members, with the rally requiring a minimum of two. ARC Caribbean 1500 continues to be the best and safest way to get to the Caribbean from the US East Coast!

Welcoming rally veterans and new cruisers beginning their adventures, a 10% early bird discount is available until the end of August as entries open.
