Location

The RORC Caribbean 600 regatta is the only offshore in the Caribbean - a non-stop race that opens the winter season. The distance and route are very interesting, and at the same time difficult. On the route, the teams go around 14 islands. Throughout the route, teams are caught in the winds of Guadeloupe, and then they are thrown towards the currents. The regatta takes place in a rather windy region, and your rivals will be the strongest teams from around the world.
