The transatlantic rally for cruising sailors, from the Canaries to Martinique in the Caribbean. Starts from Lanzarote in November 2014 and La Palma in January 2015.
The Atlantic Odyssey is an annual transatlantic rally for cruising yachts which sails from Lanzarote or La Palma in the Canary Islands to Martinique in the Caribbean.
Jimmy Cornell has launched this new transatlantic rally with the aim of returning to the spirit of his earlier rallies; that of a non-competitive event for cruising sailors, with the emphasis on safety and the enjoyment of participation in this kind of amateur event.
Participants in the Atlantic Odyssey will take part in ecological projects and share the goals of the other Odyssey events by conveying the message “The Ocean – Our Future“.
Supported by generous sponsors on both sides of the Atlantic, we are able to offer participants in the Atlantic Odyssey at a most reasonable price everything that sailors planning to cross the Atlantic could wish for.
Sailors have a choice of departure ports as well as start dates, leaving from Lanzarote in November, or La Palma in January, arriving in Martinique in the Caribbean.
