Skipper Briefing and welcome party sponsored by Lee Overlay Partners
The RORC Caribbean 600 Skipper's briefing was well attended. RORC Race Manager, Ian Loffhagen drew attention to certain parts of the course, including an exclusion zone off Montserrat due to ongoing volcanic activity. In attendance were some of the world's leading professional sailors rubbing shoulders with amateur offshore enthusiasts. After the briefing, all of the crews enjoyed a welcome party at Antigua Yacht Club. Sponsored by Lee overlay Partners, the competitors enjoyed a relaxed evening, meeting up with old friends and making some new ones.
Adrian Lee, Chief investment officer for Lee Overlay Partners and winning skipper of the 2009 event addressed the hundreds of competitors. As did the Honourable John McGinley, Minister of Tourism for Antigua and Barbuda, whose witty remarks and warm welcome was much appreciated by the hundreds of crew present. The Honourable Howard Lovell, Minister of Finance for Antigua and Barbuda was also in attendance and enjoyed mingling with guests.
By now, all of the entrants for the RORC Caribbean 600 are registered and are making final preparations for the start.
All of the boats are fitted with RORC OCTrackers and their progress can be monitored by visiting the official RORC Caribbean web site - Tracking page.
