60 for 600
Class 40 Tradition Guadeloupe, skippered by Willy Bissainte, was the 60th yacht to enter the 6th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. Tradition Guadeloupe's sail number is also 6 so this may be a lucky entry for those with a superstitious nature!
 
In 2010, Willy Bissainte steered Tradition Guadeloupe through the finish line after the prizegiving. It was a slow race for all, but the tenacious Guadeloupian skipper had refused to give up and was the last boat to finish. In contrast this year the trade winds have been blowing almost continuously in Antigua since early December and the long term forecast for the 2014 edition of the race is for the strong easterly winds to continue.  
 
International Cast
The 6th edition has seen the largest ever entry for the RORC Caribbean 600, with a strong international cast and a huge variety of yachts racing under the IRC Rating system. The fleet of 61 boats will be flying the flags of 11 different countries: Antigua; British Virgin Islands; France; Germany; The Netherlands; Italy; Russia; Spain; United Kingdom and the United States of America.
 
Start Monday 24th February, Antigua 
On Monday 24th February the start gun will fire from Fort Charlotte, Antigua and the largest fleet of yachts ever to race offshore in the Caribbean will begin their high speed adventure. Racing around 11 Caribbean islands with warm breeze both day and night, coupled with adrenalin-pumping surf conditions, the RORC Caribbean 600 is guaranteed to thrill.
