The RORC Caribbean 600 has firmly established itself as a must-do modern classic for boats based on both sides of the Atlantic attracting many of the best racing yachts and crews from all over the world. At a time when the northern hemisphere is in the grips of winter, the promise of the challenging and tactical course weaving between the Leeward Islands with warm sunshine and steady trade winds make this race such a favourite. Starting and finishing in Antigua means access is easy from around the world and the welcome is always warm and friendly.
This 600 nautical mile race circumnavigates 11 Caribbean Islands starting from English Harbour, Antigua and then heads north as far as St Martin and south to Guadeloupe taking in Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth’s.
This is not one for the fainted hearted. The race annually attracts a great range of yachts from the latest IRC designs to big classics and schooners, and has grown up to become a ‘must do’ offshore classic.
