Cornell Sailing was founded by Jimmy Cornell to continue his work dedicated to the international cruising community. We organise Odyssey rallies and races for sailors wanting to enjoy the safety and social aspects of these events, and take part in scientific research under the auspices of UNESCO-IOC.
