The Skipper’s Briefing has been completed ahead of the 15th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600, starting tomorrow morning in the beautiful Caribbean blue waters of Antigua.
A spectacular fleet of 64 boats, ranging from 32ft (9.81m) to 107ft (32.55m) will be on the startline. Over 500 crew from 26 countries will compete in this classic 600 nautical mile race. Since the first edition in 2009, the RORC Caribbean 600 has evolved into one of the world’s most challenging 600-milers. 

Starting from Fort Charlotte, English Harbour, Antigua, the race heads as far north as the Anguilla Channel and south to round Les Saintes, off Guadeloupe. The non-stop race also takes in the devastating beauty of Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba, St Barth’s, Montserrat and Redonda. 

Doyle-powered yachts looking to claim overall honours might be in luck with some great conditions forecast.

Leopard 3, the Farr 100, has had a successful build up to the C600. The team claimed Line Honours and 1st in IRC Class Z in the Antigua 360 yesterday. The penultimate race in the Nelson’s Cup Series, which they were 2nd overall to Wendy Schimdt’s Doyle-powered Deep Blue.

Spirit of Malouen X , the Wally 107 is the longest boat in the RORC Caribbean 600, she is crewed by the Paprec Sailing Team and managed by Skipper Stephane Neve for the last 25 years. The team pose a significant threat to Leopard 3 in the Line Honours fight.

These two high-performance Maxis are in contention for Monohull Line Honours and the overall win under IRC.
The start will be streamed LIVE on YouTube from 1045 AST / 1445 GMT. Visit the link here
