Offshore racing around tropical islands in shorts
This is a 600 mile race, starting and finishing in Antigua: the start is on Monday 23 February, so join us on 20 February for three days of pre race preparation and training. The race takes between 4-5 days, prior to prize giving on Friday, 27 February.
What is the RORC 600?
This will be the seventh RORC 600 race, which attracts competitors from all over the world. It's becoming a 'must do' offshore race, on a par with the RORC Fastnet. It offers fantastic sailing conditions as well as an intricate course, weaving though eleven Caribbean islands. It is designed to challenge the enthusiastic and adventurous sailor!
If you relish the opportunity to race offshore, around tropical islands in shorts and a great breeze, then join us for a fantastic experience.
