We’re edging closer to this year’s 2019 Bluewater Weekend | Working in Conjunction with the WCC

June 14, 2019


We are now in June so it is not long until the annual Bluewater Weekend, 22nd & 23rd June 2019; held here at Berthon’s Lymington HQ. We co-host this event with our friends at the World Cruising Club.

Here at Berthon we like sailing bluewater and like to think of ourselves as gurus in this segment. We all have a passion for sailing and a lot of us have experienced it with our own sea legs. We have a selection of bluewater yachts here with us in Lymington which you can explore from bow to stern over the weekend. There will also be a selection of seminars and discussion panels over the weekend about various aspects of bluewater cruising. Subjects covered will range from the safety side of things to a great discussion panel around the human side of bluewater cruising as a couple with burning questions including – do you really need to bring a hairdryer?


Selling the house and sailing off around the planet is becoming more and more popular and the growth of the internet and YouTube is motivating people from all walks of life to sell up and buy a yacht before it’s too late. Cruising allows you to see the world from a different angle, it allows a unique feeling of freedom and often a very different pace of life. It is not a holiday, and things can be difficult at times, so what better way to learn than watching and hearing from those who have been there, done it and survived to tell the tales of their highs and lows?

For those of you unfamiliar with the World Cruising Club, it is the planet’s leading sailing rally specialist, with 9 distinct rallies taking place every year – ARC, World ARC, Caribbean 1500, ARC Europe, ARC Portugal, ARC USA, ARC Baltic, ARC Delmarva and the Malts Cruise. From round-the-world adventures and ocean crossings, to social cruising and island hopping, they have the perfect event

Registration are filling up and we look forward to seeing you all there.
