On Saturday, January 9,
30 boats headed out of
Rodney Bay, St. Lucia,
on a 26,000-mile journey around
the globe with the World ARC.
From their first stop in Santa
Marta, Colombia, the fleet will
then head through the Panama
Canal and on to the Galapagos
and South Pacific. Some rally participants
plan to only go as far
as Australia, and more will join
the rally there in time for its second
half, which leaves Darwin
in September 2016.
