EPIC OFFSHORE RACINGFebruary 22-28, 2020
4 SPOTS LEFT!
A lot has been said about the Caribbean 600... so we’ll let one of the more honest appraisals of the race by Yachting World speak for itself:
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, Rolex Sydney Hobart Race and the Rolex Middles Sea Race.
ts tropical setting might lead you to believe that it is not such a hardcore event as those others, but that would be misleading. The Caribbean 600 features a tortuous course between islands, working with currents, beating into tradewinds and coaxing past the lee of land in one of the most interesting offshore courses to be found anywhere in the world.
The race annually attracts a great range of yachts from the latest IRC designs to big classics and schooners, and is firmly in the calendar of the some of the world’s best racing sailors.
The 600nm course circumnavigates 11 Caribbean Islands starting from Fort Charlotte, English Harbour, Antigua and heads north as far as St Martin and south to Guadeloupe taking in Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth’s.
What they’ve failed to highlight is just how beautiful this race is, with its backdrop of crystal clear turquoise seas, and big waves with big wind bringing huge smiles to sailors of all skills and ages!
The 2020 Sea to Sky team benefits from a superb co-skippering team of Katy Campbell (Sea to Sky owner & Yachtmaster Instructor) and sailing accomplice Nikki Henderson (youngest ever Clipper Round the World Skipper, finishing 2nd overall in the last edition!). Together with a sexy-competitive Elan 450, we’re thrilled to be fielding a team of sailors in this world famous event.
As with all Sea to Sky racing, we will be as competitive as we can be together as a team, but safety will of course always come first by a long shot, followed by providing a positive learning environment where everyone can develop their skills and enjoy the experience.
