Monday 19th February 2024 – Fort Charlotte, Antigua

A spectacular fleet of 64 boats, ranging from 32ft (9.81m) to 107ft (32.55m) will be on the startline in Antigua for the 15th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 on Monday 19th February 2024. Over 500 crew from 26 countries will compete in this classic 600 nautical mile race.

For those lucky enough to be in the Caribbean, the start of this classic 600-miler can be viewed from Fort Charlotte, high above the spectacular Pillars of Hercules, or from Shirley Heights. The first start is scheduled for 1100 AST. Since the first edition in 2009, the RORC Caribbean 600 has evolved into one of the world’s most challenging 600-milers. 

Starting from Fort Charlotte, English Harbour, Antigua, the race heads as far north as the Anguilla Channel and south to round Les Saintes, off Guadeloupe. The non-stop race also takes in the devastating beauty of Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba, St Barth’s, Montserrat and Redonda.
