RORC Caribbean 600 - 2013
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 - such as ICAP Leopard and Hetairos.
In 2012, 'Scarlet Logic' a well equipped 48ft
pedigree racing yacht, won in class and finished 4th overall - a
truly fantastic result amongst some professional racing crews!
Starting from and finishing in Antigua, the route zig-zags

The total route is 605nM and the figure of 8 loop creates eleven
legs, keeping it interesting for crew and navigators alike!

trade winds, the Caribbean is an offshore racing paradise, and with
tactical gains to be made from both winds and currents, and the
