The Blue Planet Odyssey, Jimmy Cornell’s new round-the world event

The Blue Planet Odyssey, a round the world sailing event to start in 2014 aiming to raise awareness of the global effects of climate change, will be officially launched in the USA at the Strictly Sail Chicago Boat Show on 26 January, 2013.

The Blue Planet Odyssey will be the first international sailing event to have starts from both the US east and west coasts.

The Blue Planet Odyssey is spearheaded by Jimmy Cornell, founder of the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers). Now in its 27th year the ARC is the largest transocean event in the world. In the last 26 years Jimmy Cornell has run over 30 successful international rallies, among them five round the world events: including the Hong Kong Challenge, Expo 98 Round the World Rally and Millennium Odyssey.
