Mon, 18 Feb 2013

Following a filled to capacity Skipper's Briefing, the official welcome party to open the fifth edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 was held at Antigua Yacht Club. Crews from around thirty nations arrived to the sound of a traditional steel band and enjoyed a warm Antiguan welcome.

Mike Greville, Commodore of the RORC will be racing the CM60, Venomous and he welcomed competitors from the 53 boats taking part: 'We could not do this without the help of the volunteers and Antigua Yacht Club, North Sails Caribbean who lay the only race mark in the course and A.B.S.A.R for the safety of competitors. We are also delighted to have with us representatives of the Antigua Government: The Hon. Eleston Adams, Minister for Culture, Gerry Daniel, Yachting Consultant, representing Antigua Tourism and Claude Anthony, Chairman of National Parks.This race continues to grow year on year and has become one of the classic 600 mile ocean races. Let me wish everyone a safe and fast passage in this year's race.'

The RORC Caribbean 600 starts tomorrow - Monday 18th February.
