The Royal Ocean Racing Club’s Caribbean 600 is one of the great ‘600 mile’ ocean race challenges, along with epics such as the Rolex Fastnet Race and the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race.

Its tropical setting might make it more inviting but the Caribbean 600 does not lack its set of challenges with one of the most interesting offshore courses to be found anywhere on the world between islands, working with currents, ocean swell, beating into trade winds and coaxing past the lee of land combined with tropical temperatures and stunning vistas.  This 600 nautical mile race circumnavigates 11 Caribbean Islands starting from English Harbour, Antigua and then heads north as far as St Martin and south to Guadeloupe taking in Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth’s. This is not one for the fainted hearted.

The race annually attracts a great range of yachts from the latest IRC designs to big classics and schooners, and has grown up to become a ‘must do’ offshore classic.

Competitors come from near and far to participate and  last year was one of the toughest Caribbean 600’s ever. We are proud to say that we finished thanks to a mammoth effort by crew and friends and this year we are back with our new boat and some of last years crew who are determined to improve on what was already an incredible performance.

The 13th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 will start as scheduled in Antigua on 22nd February 2021 and if you fancy escaping the cold and enjoying some excellent racing then feel free to get in touch. The price includes 4 days of training from 18th February, to prepare and get used to the boat and each other, before spending the next 5 days taking on the seas, and the competition, around the islands of the Caribbean.

Departure & Return Location

The boat will be based around Nelson’s Dockyard Marina, English Harbour, Antigua.

Closest airport is VC Bird International Airport. Transportation from the airport is available via taxis or local busses.
