RORC Caribbean 600 2017
The RORC Caribbean 600 is the only offshore race of the Caribbean series, and takes you on a fantastic journey, circumnavigating the Caribbean Islands.
Established in 2008, this race has already become a firm favourite, with many well known and glamourous sailing yachts competing - creating an awe-inspiring startline scene.
Starting from and finishing in Antigua, the route zig-zags around 11 Caribbean Islands including Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth's before looping around St Maartin and heading south around Guadeloupe and its notorious wind-shadow.
The total route is 605nM and the figure-of-8 loop creates eleven legs, keeping it interesting for crew and navigators alike!
With tropical islands, sunshine and shorts, warm seas and steady trade winds, the Caribbean is an offshore racing paradise. With tactical gains to be made from both winds and currents and the annual dilemma of how to tackle the wind shadow off Guadelopue, there is plenty of excitement throughout the race.
Don't be fooled into thinking that it is an easy race however, you'll be competing against some of the world's top sailors.
Sailing Logic have a strong track record in this race, finishing 1st in Class in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Racing with Sailing Logic on board our Beneteau First 40 will be a truly fantastic experience - an opportunity to race with the best, learn lots and experience some of the best sailing conditions in the world!
Previous racing experience is strongly recommended, consider a weekend pair in the Winter Series if you are new to racing.
