The Royal Ocean Racing Club is pleased to announce Sevenstar Yacht Transport as the Official Logistics Partner to the RORC Caribbean 600 starting in Antigua on 20th February 2017.

We are delighted that they have extended this partnership by becoming the logistics provider for the incredibly successful RORC Caribbean 600, with the ability to provide cost-effective shipping solutions for boats travelling from Europe and America," says Michael Boyd, RORC Commodore.
 
Sevenstar is the world leader in the transport of yachts and equipment all around the world, and has recently added the Racing Yacht Logistics division to specifically cater for the yacht racing community.

The new division will also ship other essential racing equipment, including spares, masts and RIBs, making sure that teams are fully race-ready by the time the start gun goes off.
 
"Sevenstar Yacht Transport is delighted to continue its association with the RORC, to add to its title sponsorship of the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race. We very much look forward to being the Official Logistics Partner of the RORC Caribbean 600 and are ready to be of service to its competitors," says Wouter Verbraak, pro-sailor and Head of Sevenstar Racing Yacht Logistics.
 
The RORC Caribbean 600 is a highly challenging and tactical 600-mile race that takes competitors around some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. This 9th edition of the race will take place on 20th February 2017 and attracts an unprecedented fleet, featuring many of the world's most spectacular and high profile boats and crews, with race teams flying in from all around the world. These include Volvo Ocean Race, America's Cup and world-class sailors, along with RORC offshore racers and passionate adventurers; all competing on the same race course offering sublime conditions; guaranteed trade winds, sunshine and warm water, that keep them coming back for more.
