18 - 23 Feb 2019
A 'must-do' for any serious off-shore sailor, the RORC Caribbean 600 will return on 18th February 2019 for its 11th edition.
Departing from English Harbour, the armada of competitors will head north as far as St Martin and back southwards towards Guadeloupe, taking in Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Saba and St Barts along the way.
Last year, a fleet record fleet of 84 yachts competed in the regatta, while the overall winner – George David’s American Maxi Rambler 88 - set a new monohull course record of 37 hours 41 minutes and 45 seconds.
Now in its 11th year, the off-shore race has significantly grown in stature since its inception. The fleet grows year-on-year, with America’s Cup and Olympic winners among the world-class sailors in attendance.
A prize-giving ceremony at the Antigua Yacht Club will conclude proceedings on the final evening of the regatta. Winners will be presented with an array of silverware, medallions and decanters, and there will be a celebratory party.
