Annual Event held in February
This event is the target of yachts competing in the Mount Gay Ocean Race.
The RORC Caribbean 600 has rapidly become a Caribbean favourite to stand up alongside such offshore race classics the Fastnet, Newport-Bermuda and Sydney-Hobart events.
Starting and finishing in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua, the mecca of Caribbean yacht racing, this 600 mile course takes competitors around, or past, 13 of the Leeward islands from Isles des Saintes in the south to Anguilla in the north.
Conceived over a beer at Antigua Yacht Club by John Burnie of the RORC and a few AYC members, the C600 was first raced in 2008, this event has already attracted more than 60 of some of the most stunning racing machines around from all over the globe for this rapidly growing Caribbean event.
Pippa competed in 2015, on the V60 “Cuba Libre”, accompanied by a few of our Yachtmaster Xpress students, and again in 2017 on our yacht “Phoenix” with a mixed crew of students and instructors.. There was unanimous agreement that it was one of the most thrilling sailing experiences they will ever have!
In 2018 Pippa plans to enter again with an all female crew.
All of our yachts eagerly await every edition!!
