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 take part in ecological projects and share the goals of the Blue Planet Odyssey by conveying the message “The oceans – our heritage for the future”.

For the first time in a transatlantic event cruisers have a choice of departure ports as well as start dates:

  • ATLANTIC ODYSSEY I:  Lanzarote to Martinique
    starts 16 Nov. 2014
    2015-16: starts 22 Nov. 2015
  • ATLANTIC ODYSSEY II:  La Palma to Martinique
    2014-15: starts 08 Jan. 2015
    2015-16: starts 09 Jan. 2016

Note that the finishing port for Atlantic Odyssey II has changed to Martinique from Grenada.

For 2014-15:

  • Participants pay an all-inclusive fee of 500 Euros if joining before 1 July 2014, regardless of the length of the boat or number of crew.
  • A 50% reduction in entry fees are offered to families with children under 16 on board.
