The Cruising Rally Association and World Cruising Club Ltd. are joining forces, the groups announced.
The Cruising Rally Association is best known as the organizer of the annual Caribbean 1500 Rally from Hampton, Va., to the British Virgin Islands.
World Cruising Club Ltd. is the organizer of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia.
"We are excited to be joining with the World Cruising Club whose size and international reputation will help insure the long-term continuation and success of the events we have worked for years to establish," CRA president and founder Steve Black said in a statement.
Future CRA rallies will continue to be organized and run from the combined organizations' U.S. office.
