The Grand Large Yachting World Odyssey 500
A 3-year round-the-world voyage.
A fleet of 32 boats holding more than 100 crew members from 13 Nationalities, and 2 dogs, have embarked on a three-year round-the world adventure this October. Organised by blue water sailing group.
Grand Large Yachting and famous sailor Jimmy Cornell – initiator of the event – the Grand Large Yachting World Odyssey 500 commemorates the 500th anniversary of the first round-the-world voyage by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano between 1519 and 1522.
“Our mission as a company is to enable everyone, experienced sailor ornot, to realise their dream of blue water sailing while respecting the oceans and providing them with security, serenity and support at every stage of the project. We are thrilled to be able to make this real by giving our sailors the opportunity to travel around the globe with the support of a group which provides not just a boat, but also the training and services to help ensure a safe and memorable experience.
What makes this really special is that, as part of the official events commemorating the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation, we are connecting like-minded people who will share together the experience of a lifetime. We cannot wait to embark on this fantastic journey with everyone involved,” says Xavier Desmarest, co-founder of Grand Large Yachting
Our Role: We partnered with GLYWO500 to do a series of films and photos on some of their stopovers across the world and document the partnerships they build with local organisations.
