Blue Water Rally cruising home
The current Blue Water Round the World Cruising Rally is due to complete its 20-month circumnavigation in April 2007. The fleet are currently heading for Africa. Entries for Blue Water Rally No.7 from 2007-9 already exceed 30, with yachts from 9 nations due to take part. In 2006 Blue Water Rallies Limited and Yachting Monthly entered into partnership for this year’s Blue Water Rally.
The Blue Water Rally 2007-9 will follow the formula established over 12 years of running round the world cruising rallies. The Blue Water Rally is aimed at families and friends sailing their own yachts, is cruising-only and follows the well-proven equatorial route through some of the most beautiful cruising areas of the world.
Throughout the event there is the “umbrella” of a professional support team in over 20 ports of call aimed at minimising problems and maximising enjoyment and safety of crews as they “Sail the Dream”. Although the Rally provides camaraderie and mutual support, the organisers strongly encourage independent cruising.
“As organisers, we offer a unique level of expertise accumulated over 12 years and over 150 yachts and their crews have circled the world with us. Clearly the Blue Water Rally meets the aspirations of world cruisers wishing to sail in company and I am sure that this year’s Rally, which we are organising in partnership with “Yachting Monthly”, will prove to be as successful as ever,” says Chris Mounsey, MD of Blue Water Rallies.
