Crew member on the RORC Caribbean 600

Dates: 17 February 2023 à 8 h 00 min - 24 February 2023 à 17 h 00 min


Price: 3350€
Over the years, the RORC Caribbean 600 has become a classic offshore navigation. A “must do” as our English friends like to say. At a time of year when the northern hemisphere is struggling with winter, the sun, warm water and constant trade winds are too hard to resist the call of the sea ! To be racing around so many tropical islands in such conditions is simply superb to live.

A unique regatta in the beautiful Caribbean islands

This race brings together all kinds of sailing boats : monohulls and racing multihulls but also super yachts and cruising sailboats with more than 900 professional and amateur sailors on board. Navigation is demanding with strong winds (but warm) and a sea often formed.

The course of the Caribbean 600 race extends for 600 nautical miles, slaloming between the magnificent islands of the Caribbean : Antigua, the island of York, Barbuda, Tintamarre, Anguilla, Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthélemy, Saba, Saint-Eustache, Saint-Kitts, Nevis, Redonda, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Les Saintes and Desirades.

With departure and arrival from Antigua, it is a real nautical challenge because of the interaction of local conditions in the different islands with the trade winds. The RORC Caribbean 600 is without a doubt a unique regatta. An experience you will always remember.
