ANTIGUA 360 RACE STARTS ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH
Friday 12th January 2018

Antigua 360º Race Starts Friday 16 February 2018
Course: Fort Charlotte - Antigua to Port – Fort Charlotte
Distance: Approx. 52 nautical miles

The third edition of the Antigua 360º Race will take place on Friday February 16, 2018 providing a 52 mile anti-clockwise circumnavigation of Antigua. Organized by the Antigua Superyacht Challenge committee, the race is followed 3 days later by the RORC Caribbean 600 offshore classic which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018.

New for 2018, the race is open to all boats whether racing in the RORC Caribbean 600 or who just want to take a crack at the record. For those who are racing the ‘600 however many are usually out training on the Friday before the offshore race, so the Antigua 360º adds a slightly competitive edge to that training.” commented Stan Pearson, who conceived the Antigua 360º and is a co-founder of the RORC Caribbean 600. “The race around Antigua offers many of the conditions and wind angles seen on the '600 – and some of the legs are even actually part of it such as the start and the finish.”
 
The Prize Giving will be held as soon as possible after the race, at The Admiral's Inn, Nelson Dockyard. Line Honours for both the Monohull and Multihull Classes will be awarded with a barrel of rum, with an additional barrel for a race record. The overall winner of the race, for yachts racing under IRC, will also receive a barrel suitably filled.
