Wouter Verbraak - Sevenstar Yacht Logistics
"This could be a small boat race!"

Sevenstar Yacht Transport is the official Logistics Partner to the RORC Caribbean 600. Wouter Verbraak, Head of Sevenstar Racing Yacht Logistics and leading professional yachtsman walks the course before the start of the 2020 RORC Caribbean 600 starting from Antigua on Monday 24th February.
 
"This year is going to be a very different race. The wind funnels and the big lees around the islands are going to be key," commented Verbraak. "The last two editions have been very windy, but 2020 will be the opposite, with light winds at the start and pretty much throughout the whole race course. In these light wind conditions, the sailors will be looking to use the wind that funnels around the islands, and avoiding, where possible, the big lees. The islands are going to be big obstacles that will really keep the afterguard on their toes. The breeze should increase later in the race, so this could be a small boat race for the overall win," continued Verbraak.
 
An in-depth 30-minute video with Wouter goes into detail about the important strategic considerations.
