Why we love the RORC Caribbean 600 race

When we first heard about this event in 2008 we thought that the combination of fantastic racing conditions with warm seas and steady trade winds sounded most unappealing, after all we’d rather be soaking cold and freezing wet in the English Channel. No not really! We jumped at the chance of some fabulous sailing in sunshine, grabbed our shorts and t-shirts and made sure we were on the Caribbean 600 race entry list. Offshore racing on turquoise seas in brilliant sunshine, a keen fleet and stiff competition, with interesting navigation and tactics thrown in, we don’t think we need to really sell it to you any more! So if you are feeling a bit low on Vitamin Sea in February make sure to join our crew for the best sailing fun in the sun with some rum thrown in for good measure. No previous racing experience is needed; you will get excellent race training as part of the Caribbean 600 race campaign.

We were very proud of our 2011 PYR Team sailing on board EH01 who achieved a 2nd in class 1 IRC just 23 minutes behind Tonnerre on corrected time, 2012 and 2013 we achieved credible results of 5th in class and then in 2014 we made it back onto the podium finishing 2nd accross the water and 3rd on corrected time in IRC 2, 2015 was a fabulous year with a hard fought battle for 2nd place and we achieved another 2nd place in 2016
