The Grand Large Yachting World Odyssey 500 is a round the world rally, commemorating the 500th anniversary of the first round the world voyage by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano.
To celebrate this special occasion, Jimmy Cornell and the Grand Large Yachting team invite you to join an exclusive rally, initially reserved for Outremer, Garcia, Allures and Gunboat owners but now open to a few boats outside of the group.
The itinerary, highlighting the global reach of this event, will include 2 routes:
- Tropical, along the traditional trade wind route,
- Southern via the Magellan Strait and Patagonia,
The two routes will merge in Tahiti from where the combined fleet will sail together for the remaining part of the rally.
A scientific and educational program specifically created for the event.
The GLYWO 500 is a round the world sailing event aimed at highlighting the consequences of climate change by calling at some of the most endangered island communities. This global sailing event will also endeavor to highlight the effects of climate change on the Arctic icecap, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Galapagos Islands, all of which lie on the GLYWO 500 route.
In line with the overall aim of the Odyssey, participants will play an active role in projects undertaken by the event by being involved in an educational program, including contact with a school of origin and local schools along the way to keep them informed of the progress of the rally, and which will be visited upon arrival. Participants will also be invited to take part in scientific data gathering on behalf of international research institutions, and to contribute to community projects in some of the endangered places the GLYWO 500 will be visiting.
