Oyster World Rally 2024-2025 officially underway

19 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

The latest edition of the Oyster World Rally – a fully supported, 16-month circumnavigation of the world – is officially underway. The 30-strong Oyster fleet departed Nelson's Dockyard, Antigua on 14 January 2024.

When the rally is complete, the fleet will have travelled 27,000 nautical miles and made 27 stopovers. Locations include the Galapagos, Cocos (Keeling Islands), Cape Town and Grenada.

"The trick to this rally is three things: resources, time and health," said owner of the 22.7-metre Oyster 725 Intrepid. "Those stars have to align and they won't line up forever. So, if you have a chance to put those three things together, then you've got to do it."

The Oyster fleet will meet again in Panama for their transit through the canal in mid-February. The three routes to Panama include travelling north via the British Virgin Islands, south via the Caribbean, or south west via the ABC Islands.
