Yachts sailing from Northern Europe to the Canaries or Mediterranean in 2014 are invited to join the European Odyssey as it makes its way south with stops in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Starting from Hamburg in July 2014, the yachts in the European Odyssey will sail across the North Sea to Hamburg’s twin, the City of London. Here they will join the start of the Blue Planet Odyssey round the world rally.

From 2015, the European Odyssey will expand to feature starts from St Petersburg in the Baltic to Sevastopol in the Black Sea.

The European Odyssey is an annual event organised by Cornell Sailing Events. It is managed by an international team of experienced sailors with several circumnavigators among them, led by bestselling author and founder of sailing rallies Jimmy Cornell.
