As part of World ARC 2017 everyone taking part benefits from the camaraderie of sharing this unique event with around 20 other yachts
Leg 10 of World Arc 2017
After joining on the 24th in Mauritius, you will set sail for Reunion Island on the 26th. It is only a 24 hour sail, so a good shake-down passage before heading on to South Africa. Reunion is a French dependency and the mountainous interior is dominated by the remains of 3 huge craters. There are many walking paths to fully appreciate the breathtaking volcanic scenery.
From here you will set sail with the World ARC fleet to Richard's Bay in South Africa. Richard's Bay is just north of Durban and we will have a few days exploring there before heading round to Cape Town. There are good opportunities here to explore inland nature and game reserves. Arriving in Cape Town under the impressive Table Mountain will signal the completion of crossing the Indian Ocean.
Due to the importance of sailing to Cape Town with the right weather conditions, it cannot be guaranteed exactly when you will arrive. Therefore it is advisable not to book flights home in advance and to be aware that the end of this leg may require some flexibility.
The boat will have a 6 week break in Cape Town, so for those doing multiple legs, it's a great opportunity to explore Africa on Safari, or an overland adventure. You could also of course fly home for Christmas.
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.
