Event Navigation

The RORC Caribbean 600 is a 605nm offshore race around the leeward islands, starting and finishing in Antigua. The course takes the competitors racing as far north as St Martin and as far south as Guadaloupe, with all but one rounding mark being an island. The race is designed to be a challenging offshore yacht race in idyllic sailing conditions with beautiful scenery at every turn.

Northern Child has competed in Caribbean regattas since 2001. She is superbly equipped for racing with a full inventory of race sails and is maintained to the very highest standard. This year Northern Child is offering an 9 day package including 2 training days before the race.

With individuals or a group on board, our objective is to give a safe and enjoyable experience to all crew members whilst racing round the beautiful islands and stunning blue water.

The two professional crew will train the crew to ensure that the racing is safe, fun and enable each crew member to make a valuable contribution to the team effort. Although prior race or sailing experience is preferred, it is not essential. The 2 training days represent a great opportunity for each crew member to get familiar with the yacht and the racing manoeuvres.
