Leg 9 of World Arc 2017
Depart from Lombok on the 17th September on a 620 mile passage across to Christmas Island, The Jewel of the Indian Ocean. Christmas Island is a territory of Australia and is a wonderful place to enjoy nature at its best. Sometimes referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, there are many unusual birds and endemic species of wildlife here whilst the beautiful coral reefs are home to an abundance and diversity of tropical fish. The island is also famous for its large population of red land crabs, their annual migration has been described by ecologists as one of the wonders of the natural world.
Sailing on to Cocos Keeling, you will head for Port Refuge on Direction Island. This is a wonderful tranquil bay on an uninhabited island. From there, there is the chance to visit Home Island where around 500 Malay people live. Here you can sample the local spicy cuisine and snorkel or dive in the crystal clear waters. World ARC will also organise some fleet events such as a beach barbeque.
From here it’s a passage of 2530 nautical miles across to Mauritius which should take around 17 days.
This beautiful performance cruising yacht was built for world voyaging and is one of today’s most well-known and respected adventure/expedition charter yachts.
It specialises in taking individuals, couples and small groups to places usually only available on your own yacht - but with the benefit of an experienced skipper and crew and onboard an extremely well found vessel.
Owner-operated, since 2008 it has built a well-deserved reputation as a professional operation. Providing a relaxed, fun and friendly environment, it sees guests returning year after year for a mixed programme of classic racing, transatlantic trips and World Arc voyages.
Your hosts and co-skippers Dan and Em, have logged some hundreds of thousands of sea miles as cruising, ocean and racing skippers. Forming a perfect team, they work together to ensure that every detail of your holiday is taken care of. Whether racing, relaxing or adventure sailing, they strive to provide a fun, safe and memorable experience.
Designed, engineered and built to quality standards comparable with the finest yachts in the world, few performance cruising designs built today have the exceptional strength, classic styling and beautifully varnished woodwork that she offers.
A spacious deck layout, large safe cockpit area and wide side decks make for comfortable and safe cruising. The interior arrangement provides 3 separate cabins, all en suite; one double with private shower and heads; two twin cabins forward, sharing one shower and heads with private access. The spacious saloon provides 2 secure pilot berths and 2 saloon berths giving the possibility of sleeping 10 on board.
