RORC Caribbean 600

20th – 27th February

Charter of Yacht with a Professional Skipper / Owners Representative – POA

The inaugural RORC Caribbean 600 race was run in February 2009 and was such a success it is already a permanent fixture on the RORC calendar and you can be part of it! The race is run in conjunction with the Antigua Yacht Club and starts on the 22 February 2016 off Fort Charlotte outside English Harbour, Antigua.

The course takes the fleet to the north passing a mark off Barbuda, the islands of Nevis, Saba and St Barths, to circle St Maarten before heading down to Guadeloupe as the most southerly point, then back up to a mark off Barbuda before returning to finish in Antigua. A total of 605 nautical miles.

It is believed that this new race will become one of the worldwide classic offshore races, joining the Rolex Fastnet Race, the Sydney-Hobart and the Newport-Bermuda race as one of the ‘must-do’ races on the offshore circuit.
