The RORC Caribbean 600 celebrates its 10th Anniversary
The Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) Caribbean 600 celebrates a decade with a stellar reputation as a must-do offshore race by some of the best teams in the world. The 600-nautical- mile, 14-island race starts outside Falmouth Harbour, Antigua, on February 19th and ends in the same place. Spectators can get a great view of the start from Fort Charlotte or Shirley Heights.
This year, entered teams include George David’s maxi, Rambler 88. David’s Rambler 100 set the still-standing course record (1 day 16 hours 20 minutes and 2 seconds) in 2011. New entries are three Gunboats: Arethusa, skippered by NYYC Commodore, Phil Lotz; Flow, sailed by owner Stephen Cucchiaro and Elvis, skippered by two-time Melges 32 World Champion, Jason Carroll.
Armchair sailors not in Antigua can follow their favorites via online fleet tracking from the event website.
