#NEWSFLASH - RORC Transatlantic Race moves to January from 2021! - The Royal Ocean Racing Club have announced a new start date for the 7th edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race. Traditionally held in November each year from Lanzarote to Grenada, the next edition will start from @calero_marinas Puerto Calero on the 9th January 2021 and once again finish at @campernicholsonsmarinas Port Louis Marina in @puregrenada. - This date change is the most significant of a number of subtle changes the RORC is making to its Season Points Championships, which includes making the @rolexmiddlesearace the first points race in the Championships, not the last, and also changes to the points factors for certain offshore races. - Full story via http://bit.ly/2Tt8djP - #RORCTransatlanticRace

BIG BOAT THEORY! #Caribbean600 - For the 12th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600, 21 teams - racing yachts of 50ft (15.24m) or over - have already signed up for the 600-mile blast around 11 Caribbean Islands. The competition in all the classes will be as fierce as ever. - The racecourse and weather combine to produce a thrilling race in tropical heat with non-stop action for the international fleet. - Peter and David Askew (USA) racing Volvo 70 Wizard will be defending last year’s overall win. Wizard’s crew will include stars from the Volvo Ocean Race: Charlie Enright (USA), Robert Greenhalgh (GBR), Phil Harmer (AUS), Will Oxley (AUS), Mark Towill (USA), Curtis Blewett (CAN) and Richard Clarke (CAN). - “It’s the toughest 600-mile race in the world. Lots of turns and always windy,” commented Peter Askew. “We are most looking forward to being out of the cold Mid-Atlantic USA weather for a week in late February. The course in general is what makes the event unique; sailing for 600 miles through all the islands is a blast and the beautiful trade wind sailing conditions are perfect for our boat.” - Ron O’Hanley (USA) racing Cookson 50 Privateer was the overall winner in 2013 and came second overall to Rambler 88 in 2018. Boat Captain Scott Innes-Jones (NZL) is looking forward to racing in 2020. - “Privateer is a good all-rounder, so we need a bit of everything,” commented Innes-Jones. “If we just get big reaching, the bigger boats put us away, but if there are a couple of slow spots we can come back at them. Since the boat was originally designed it has really changed; we have optimised Privateer as best we can. To win you have to sail well and have a bit of luck, everything has got to go your way.” - Four examples of Nautor’s Swan have already entered the 2020 RORC Caribbean 600, including 2009 winning skipper Adrian Lee (IRL) who will be racing his Swan 60 Lee Overlay Partners II. - Read more via the Caribbean 600 website or visit the link in our bio. - #RORCracing 📸Sharon Green, Tim Wright, Paul Wyeth, @nautorswan_official

The 12th edition of the Royal Ocean Racing Club's RORC Caribbean 600 will start on Monday 24th February 2020 from Antigua! 🇦🇬 - Already the early entries are nudging towards an eclectic mix of 50 boats, with competition expected to be as red hot as ever. Previous overall and class winners are already committed to the thrilling 600-mile race around 11 Caribbean islands. - “A key ingredient to a great event is a good mix in the fleet and the early entries are showing that we will have fierce and friendly competition in every class. As well as the race for overall and class honours, there are battles within the fleet between boats of similar speed. Close competition is a great catalyst for performance and the RORC is really excited about the prospect of another thrilling edition of the RORC Caribbean 600." - RORC Racing Manager, Chris Stone - Last year's overall winner, American Volvo 70 Wizard, will have a stellar crew led by David and Peter Askew. Wizard will be attempting to retain the RORC Caribbean 600 Trophy, a feat never achieved in the 11 previous editions of the race. Winning IRC Zero will be Wizard's first goal and to do so, they will need to beat 2013 overall winner, Ron O'Hanley's American Cookson 50 Privateer, which was runner-up to Wizard last year. - Three of the world's fastest multihulls will also be on the startline; Jason Carroll with Argo (MOD 70), Giovanni Soldini's Maserati (Multi 70), and Peter Cunningham's PowerPlay (MOD 70) will be match racing for Multihull Line Honours, but the Multihull Class is decided by the MOCRA rating rule and last year's runner-up, Greg Slyngstad’s American Bieker 53 Fujin will be back to try to better this result. - Full story via the link in our bio! #Caribbean600 📸 RORC/Arthur Daniel/Tim Wright

Jangada Win Epic #RORCTransatlanticRace! - The 2019 RORC Transatlantic Race was an epic 3,000nm race in the wild blue Atlantic Ocean. Childhood 1 posted a 400nm 24-hour run on the way to taking line honours, and Jangada went on to win the race overall under IRC, becoming the smallest yacht to win the race, and the first heroic win for a Two Handed team. - Full story via the link in our bio. - 📸 RORC / Arthur Daniel

🙏🏼 The overall winner of the 2019 RORC Transatlantic Race, Richard Palmer's JPK 10.10 Jangada, racing two handed with Jeremy Waitt! 🏆👏🏼 - "This win absolutely exceeded all our expectations - a great start to the season!" commented Jangada's owner, Richard Palmer. "The competition out there certainly gave us a run for our money - Childhood 1 was doing 20 knots and we could never match that speed, and Pata Negra 12 knots, but we just said 'bring it on' and we raced hard all the way to the finish." - #RORCTransatlanticRace #FreeToWonder © RORC / Arthur Daniel @puregrenada @campernicholsonsmarinas @portlouismarinaofficial
