(SLTA SCOOP) — The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) is proud to partner with World Cruising Club (WCC) for another World ARC.
Twenty-nine yachts from 13 countries are making the voyage around the world, starting at the IGY Rodney Bay Marina on Saturday, January 12, 2019.
A cocktail reception was held to bid the sailors farewell on Thursday, January 11, 2019 at the Hi-Tide Restaurant, Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa.
In wishing the yachters well on their 15-month adventure, Acting CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Mrs. Tiffany Howard, encouraged the participants to, “Take Saint Lucia with you and tell everyone about us as you circumnavigate the globe on this incredible journey.”
She also noted the SLTA had moved its offices to premises just across the street from the Marina in order to serve their needs better.
The World ARC will end in Saint Lucia in 2020 after participants have completed the 26,000-nautical mile journey around the world, making various stops along the way.
