The RORC Caribbean 600 is the only offshore race of the Caribbean series, and takes you on a fantastic journey, circumnavigating the Caribbean Islands.

For 2018 we will be entering The RORC Caribbean 600 on 'BOB', a fully race ready Farr 52. BOB has had an interesting history over the years after initially being launched as ‘Bear of Britain’ for legendary yachtsman Kit Hobday. Hobday’s ‘Bear of Britain Academy’ provided training for young sailors in the art of racing and established a strong racing pedigree, winning several prestigious titles over the years. Renamed as “BOB”, the well-known yacht went on to make global headlines when BP CEO Tony Hayward and co-owner of “BOB” at the time, came under fierce criticism for racing the yacht shortly after the BP oil spillage in the Gulf of Mexico. “BOB” then most recently joined the ‘Toe in the Water’ charity which used competitive sailing to re-inspire injured servicemen from the armed forces.

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 Maarten 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 Guadeloupe, 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 'BOB' the Farr 52 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.

I started racing with Sailing Logic two years ago and haven't looked back; The quality of training, skippers and boats make it the best and most professional school I've ever raced with. Head and shoulders above the rest!

Thank-you Sailing Logic for making 2015 one of the best years I have had. The sailing was amazing but the new friends and the feel of being part of one big happy family is priceless.

Our skipper's example of outstanding seamanship and his nurturing of the team meant we not only had a fabulously enjoyable year but importantly, we could really make the yacht go fast! This is not just sailing, this is Sailing Logic.
