Eddie’s Oyster odyssey

Eddie Jordan, owner of Oyster 885 Lush recounts his reasons for joining the Oyster Rally, one of his bucket-list life experiences …

The Oyster World Rally is regarded as the world’s most iconic round-the-world rally.  A 27,000-mile, 16-month adventure, stopping at some of the world’s most remote locations, sharing the journey with an international fleet of Oyster Yachts, while fully supported by the Oyster Rally Technical team.

So, when in 2013 Formula One supremo Eddie Jordan decided to take part in the very first rally with his new Oyster 885 Lush, he created memories to last a lifetime in what he says was the most amazing trip of his life.

Eddie Jordan’s voyage of a lifetime is now being made into a four-part series to celebrate 50 years of Oyster Yachts and mark the 10th anniversary of the Oyster World Rally. In it, Jordan relives his world rally and looks to inspire others to take on this round-the-world voyage.

Each episode takes the viewer deep into his journey, from the initial decision to take part in the first-ever Oyster World Rally and his choice of an Oyster 885, the start in Antigua, to exploring the Caribbean’s paradise atolls and an exhilarating crossing of the Panama Canal.

The series continues with a look at the diverse wildlife of the Galápagos Islands and the best places to visit in French Polynesia, and concludes with Jordan’s stand-out moments sailing off Indonesia and Cape Town.

With the fourth Oyster World Rally due to start in January 2024, this series offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at one person’s experience and his adventure of a lifetime.
