The RORC Caribbean 600 race is fast becoming one of the classic offshore races as its popularity increases every year and with good reason! The 600 Nm race is an annual RORC race and is hosted by the Antigua Yacht Club in Falmouth Harbour.
The route provides an awesome race that circumnavigates 11 Caribbean Islands, it is the only true offshore race in the Caribbean and the consistent trade winds provide some of the finest offshore sailing conditions available.
Starting and finishing in Antigua this Caribbean offshore race is without a doubt tough, but it is an incredible experience combining superb hospitality from Antigua Yacht Club with exhilarating racing in a stunning location. Not to be missed!
Philippe has completed the race twice now, the last time on Sojana in 2012, an incredible 115 Farr superyacht. In 2013 he will be racing on Quokka 8, a Grand Soleil 43 and a podium finish is without a doubt the goal.
