Atlantic & Caribbean Odyssey

Non-competitive transatlantic rally for cruising sailors, from Tenerife in the Canary Islands to Barbados in the Caribbean.

Launched in 2013 by Jimmy Cornell, the success of this rally is based on the atmosphere of friendly interaction between participants.

To maintain this unique atmosphere, the number of boats is limited to maximum 50.

An interesting aspect of the Atlantic & Caribbean Odyssey is the large number of families with children.

Choose your start date and route:

  • Try the classic November non-stop crossing  from Tenerife to Barbados, ready for a Caribbean Christmas: Atlantic Odyssey.
  • Spend Christmas in Tenerife and make a direct passage  to Barbados in January: Caribbean Odyssey.
    Note: The Caribbean Odyssey direct route to Barbados is no longer taking place, all yachts will make a stopover in Cape Verdes. (Caribbean Odyssey CV, see below)
  • New for 2017
    Leave a little earlier and make a short stopover in the Cape Verdes, to check your boat’s systems, reprovision and have a rest before continuing on to Barbados: Atlantic Odyssey CV and Caribbean Odyssey CV

Whatever your choice you can be sure of a warm Caribbean welcome in Barbados.

captionIf you would prefer to make an early start from Tenerife in October, have a 3-week stopover in the Cape Verdes to explore any island you wish, and make a shorter Atlantic crossing, why not consider the Islands Odyssey?
