RORC Caribbean 600
Tactical racing at close quarters was necessary in the light conditions which faced the crews in this year’s RORC Caribbean 600 race.
Global Yacht Racing’s director Andy Middleton was joined onboard EH01 our First 47.7 by the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s Committee crew. After a number of days of close quarters racing between the yachts in this class, their hard work and tactical manoeuvres paid off…The final results are in.
‘EH01’ finished in 3rd place in Class IRC2.
Racing with Gareth aboard Grand Soleil 43 Jua Kali were a team of individuals many of whom had raced with us previously in ARC and Fastnet races. In addition three of our trainees also added to the wealth of offshore experience on board. Clearly these guys are a patient lot and are used to marathon events as indeed this race turned out to be; in the light airs. Their approach paid off and they achieved 4th place in Class IRC2.
Global Yacht Racing joined forces with our friends at Sailing Logic this year to offer more places for this popular event. As ever with strong competition in this class it’s been a very exciting event to be part of. Martin and his crew have been battling it out on the race course with close racing against yacht ‘Kali’. They have finished in a very respectable 8th place in Class IRC2.
