Light air combat amongst sparkling conditions for the 12th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. 73 yachts, 37 nations, and well over 700 sailors from across the globe are embarking on the 600 mile offshore around 11 Caribbean Islands.
The impressive 73-boat fleet gathered outside Antigua’s English Harbour, relishing the prospect of racing 600nm in stunning conditions. A light south easterly breeze gave a gentle start to the race, but the fierce competition was exemplified by highly competitive starts right through the fleet. Lighter than usual conditions are forecast for the first 24-hours of the race, adding another level of strategy to the fascinating race around 11 Caribbean islands.
