world crusing rally NOT ARC

Hello All
Having wanted to do a world cruise for a long time I now have the time and the boat to do it. I checked the ARC World Cruising Club site and was immediately put off by the very, very high price $25,000.00 plus (US Dollars). It seems all you get for your money is a copy of Cruising World magazine, paid passage through the Panama Canal, and a few nights in marinas before leaving a port. If anyone has intrest in Putting together and inexpensive NON PROFIT world Cruise departing winter of 2008, returing aprox one year later, I would appreciate hearing from you.
David

It would be my submission, that Part of the cost would include insurance. Any person organising, any event wether for profit of not, is liable for public liability covering all perceived and unperceived events arising from the organising and running the event.

The logistics of arranging a long-distance voyage with diverse boats of differing capabilities and crews of varying abilitlies is a nightmare. That is one of the reasons that the ARC charges so much. There is some safety in travelling in numbers, and the ARC provides that.

One year is an awfully short time for a world circumnavigation, especially in smaller boats. It is generally unwise to go sailing on a set schedule. The sea and weather gods tend to smack you down if you try to dictate to them on terms like that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Simonv & Sailingdog
Thanks for your coments, the purpose of my post was not to open a discusion of the why's and where fores of how to organize the a trip but to seach out other boats and crews intrested in a world cruise. A world cruise without the additional cost of someone profiting from the adventure.
Thanks again
David

Ill bet he is still at home in florida because he was too scared to go sailing without someone to hold his hand... Cheaply.

Sailing in Numbers is safer is a myth. You are better off be self reliant and if all fails, wait for your friendly and professional CG to save your ass. If you think other boats or the organizer will save your ass. You are greatly misinformed. If you are in trouble, they are most likely in trouble too. I would not trust some guys I met in the welcoming party to save my ass. I would rather step up to the life raft and stay alive for three days or so for a ride back to shore courtesy of USCG.

Last year in C1500, less than 24 hours after, we did not see any boats until we were a few hours before Nanny key. We supposed getting the weather update everyday from the organizer, we got nothing. We had to rely on our wives and friends to pass the latest weather info to us. I felt sorry for the Captain who paid dearly for the trip. But for the records, there are a few boats/captains who have been sailing with C1500 for many many years. I am not sure what is their reasons. May be they get to join for free, good PR for sure.

But that is just me. YMMV.

I will reply here so everyone can read it. It is basically impossible to cruise in company over long distances, even if the boats are very similar in design. What we have found is that you sometimes, and temporarily, have buddy boats or at least informal radio nets going. We went from Bahamas to Panama and Fiji to Brisbane with the same boat (44' cat) and in some conditions had similar speed but not always. Going from Galapagos to Easter Island we had a net going over about 1000 miles that was a big help to one boat but you might only. You might be close to another boat when you pass them or the reverse.

You must be prepared to do it independently even though you may have radio communication with others. If you are not confident enough to do it on your own you are probably not ready to do it all.
