Charlie and Cathy Simon of the Spokane- and Puerto Vallarta-based Taswell 58 Celebrate report they have completed the 2014-2015 ARC Round the World Rally. That’s 26,000 tropical miles in just 15 months.
The World ARC organizers describe the event as “a mix of cruising in company and free time to explore. The pace of the rally allows the fleet to stay together, and to enjoy shore-side activities as a group. There are longer free cruising periods that allow participants to fly home for work or family, or to travel further by air; for example to Easter Island, New Zealand or Madagascar.”
We at Latitude 38 are very interested to learn how the Simons liked the rally concept and the admittedly rapid pace. Apparently we’ll get our chance, as the Simons are coming through St. Barth just before we close the Latitude Caribbean office for the season. You can expect a big report in the June issue.
