Beau Geste takes monohull line honours finishing the RORC Caribbean 600

Finishing 25th February 00 01 13

Elapsed Time: 2 Days 11 Hours 21 Minutes 13 Seconds

This was the first time Karl Kwok has sailed in the Caribbean and by the smile on his face it won’t be the last. “I really enjoyed it, great sailing except for the long beat to Guadeloupe which meant we had no chance of beating Leopard’s record but this is a great race and well run by the Royal Ocean Racing Club.”

Helmsman Gavin Brady was very impressed with the race course as he explained dockside. “This race has something for everyone, certainly a race course where you have to concentrate all the time. I sailed in shorts and T-shirt the whole race, even though the wind strength got up to 20 knots. That’s something you don’t say very often after a 600 mile classic.”

Beau Geste crew:

Karl Kwok, Magarete Chan, Cowen Chu, Bill Lo, Gavin Brady, Cameron Ward, Guy Endean, Heather Flick, Ryan Houston, Andy Meiklejohn, Jan Majer, Jamie Gale, James Baxter, David Endean, Jono Swain, Justin Clougher, Steve Calder, Matt Black Rodney Daniel, Peter Pendleton, Chris Larson, Alaster Campbell, Tom Addis.

You can track the yachts and read the messages that are coming in by accessing the Tracker Page or the Boat Blogs page on the official RORC Caribbean 600 web site.
