Description The Royal Ocean Racing Club’s Caribbean 600 is one of the great ‘600 mile’ ocean race challenges, along with epics such as the Rolex Fastnet Race and the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race. Its tropical setting might make it more inviting but the Caribbean 600 does not lack its set of challenges with one of the most interesting offshore courses to be found anywhere on the world between islands, working with currents, ocean swell, beating into tradewinds and coaxing past the lee of land combined with tropical temperatures and stunning vistas. This is not one for the fainted hearted. The race annually attracts a great range of yachts from the latest IRC designs to big classics and schooners, and has grown up to be has grown up to become a ‘must do’ offshore classic. 600nm circumnavigate 11 Caribbean Islands starting from Fort Charlotte, English Harbour, Antigua and heads north as far as St Martin and south to Guadeloupe taking in Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth’s. The 12th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 will start as scheduled in Antigua on 18th February 2020. Bolstered by a record entry for the RORC Transatlantic Race, a strong Racing Division for the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, and determined competitors from all over the Caribbean, the 11th edition of the highly acclaimed 600-mile offshore race is set to be a real cracker, with a record entry anticipated. Last year was one of the toughest Caribbean 600’s ever, we are proud to say that we finished! thanks to a mamouth effort by crew and friends, this year we are back with our new boat and some of last years crew who are determined to improve on what was already an incredible performance. If you fancy escaping the cold and enjoying some excellent racing then feel free to get in touch. It’s 600 miles of non stop offshore racing starting from Antigua and sailing up and around the islands from Guadeloupe in the south to Anguilla in the north. Competitors come from near and far to participate and we’re looking to put together an experienced crew to give them a run for their money. The price includes 2-4 days of training to prepare and get used to the boat and each other, before spending the next 5 days taking on the seas, and the competition, around the islands of the Caribbean
