Antigua, Caribbean

24 - 28 Feb 2020

By Katia Damborsky

One of the most exciting off-shore racing events on the calendar, RORC Caribbean 600 will bring another excellent fleet of sailing yachts to the Caribbean for its 12th edition in 2020.

Beginning in Antigua, RORC Caribbean 600 sees a convoy of yachts circumnavigating 11 Caribbean islands in the hopes of being crowned with a winning title.

Spanning 600 nautical miles, the race requires stellar teamwork and near-perfect accuracy, making it a must-do for anyone wishing to experience the thrills of a regatta charter.

The Circuit

Departing from Fort Charlotte, the armada of competitors head north as far as St Martin and then return southwards towards Guadeloupe. Along the way, they will take in Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Saba and St Barts.

Combing the idyllic backdrop of the Caribbean with the region’s signature trade winds providing near-perfect sailing conditions, the non-stop regatta promises a one-of-a-kind experience.

The Fleet

Last year’s event attracted 76 teams from 21 countries, including winners from the Olympic Games, America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race among the competitors.

There is expected to be a number of members from the global charter fleet on the line-up as well, and with awards in 12 categories overall, there are plenty of victories to be had. 

Social Scene

What’s more, visitors can expect a lively social scene in the evenings as well, with a welcome party to inaugurate proceedings and an awards ceremony and concert to round off the event.

This event marks the perfect way to extend a Caribbean yacht charter vacation; if you would like to participate or watch on the sidelines from the comfort of a luxury yacht, please get in touch with your preferred charter broker.
