Pantaenius in partnership with the Jimmy Cornell Odyssey rally

April 03, 2014

Pantaenius Yacht Insurance will be supporting the next Odyssey rally organised by sailing legend Jimmy Cornell and providing the insurance for all participating yachts for their trip around the world.

Pantaenius in partnership with the Jimmy Cornell Odyssey rallyAs founder of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, Jimmy Cornell is considered the inventor of cruising yacht rallies. This year, he will be organising three of his famous Odysseys. The European-, Atlantic- and Blue Planet Odysseys provide yacht owners from around the world with an unforgettable experience without the pressure and competitiveness of standard regattas.

Cornell's sailing events focus on conserving our seafaring heritage for future generations. During the rally, participants get involved with research, educational or community projects in order to raise awareness of the global effects of climate change.

The European Odyssey is set to begin on 3 July 2014 at the City Sporthafen harbour in Hamburg. Participants will head towards London, before later joining the Blue Planet Odyssey further south. Pantaenius will be at the start, with a stand set up in HafenCity.

This event is very much in line with Pantaenius' values as the environment is very close to employees' hearts. As water sports enthusiasts we all value our seas and other bodies of water, and we must therefore help to protect them. Pantaenius is proud to work together with the sailing community on this issue.
