RORC Caribbean 600
RORC CARIBBEAN 600 RACE 2023
13th -24 February 2023 (Training day 13th]
The RORC Caribbean 600 has come a long way with 900 sailors from 30 countries taking part on a hugely challenging course with many different legs around the Caribbean islands, sail changes, wind shifts and the cream of world offshore racing to compete with in the comparative warmth of the Caribbean.
The Royal Ocean Racing Club announces the inaugural RORC Caribbean 600 Series which will be based in Antigua from 14th to 24th February 2023. The series will include three days of racing followed by the main event; the 14th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. The RORC Caribbean 600 Series is open to boats racing under the IRC, CSA and MOCRA Class Rules, plus other suitable classes
This exciting event attracts an incredible fleet including some of the top racers in the world but at the same time has plenty to offer enthusiastic amateurs and first time offshore racers.
2023 sees the creation of a race series for the RORC Caribbean 600 14th & 15th Feb will be inshore racing; 16th Feb is Lay day and then 17th Feb, the 360 Round Antigua Race. The main event starts on the 20th Feb.
At this stage we plan to race the full series with some changes to the training programme.
The event dovetails with the other major Caribbean Regattas and the main 600 racewill set off from Fort Charlotte, just outside English Harbour in Antigua. Heading north, the fleet will pass a mark off Barbuda, Nevis, Saba and St Barth’s before circling St Maarten and heading down the west coast and round the south of Guadeloupe.
Finally you will head back north to a mark off Barbuda, across to the tiny but spectacular ‘Kingdom of Redonda’ before returning to Antigua for the finish.
We have options for individuals or small groups to join ‘Team Juno’
Team Spirit of Juno
We are back, of course we would be, it is one of our favourite races.
A classic warm water race round beautiful islands in trade winds, well normally yes, but in 2017 half the fleet, we had to retire due to sustained winds of over 40 kts. One thing which the 2017 gales proved is that when the going gets rough a Farr 65 that has raced round the World and across the Southern Ocean is a good boat to be on.
We are seeking team members to join us on Team Juno. We provide 3-4 days of training before the race and if you wish you can also sleep on board, which both saves the cost of accommodation plus increases familiarity with the layout. It is great if you are already an accomplished racing sailor, but you don’t need experience if you are a committed team member as all 4 Official Crew have considerable experience, both on Juno and other yachts
Cost for individual places is $2775
We also have a Beneteau First 36.7 available for whole boat charter at $13500
