Make a difference

The GLY World Odyssey 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 endeavour 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 Odyssey route.


The GLY World Odyssey was previously only open to mono hulled and multi hulled vessels of one of the Grand Large Yachting brands: Allures, Garcia, Gunboat, Outremer and RM Yachts. Considering there are still a few spots left, we have decided to open the rally to a few non-GLY boats. Please keep in mind that we aim to have as many children as possible taking part in this Odyssey, so we’ll give priority to the registration of boats with budding crew members.
