PowerPlay win with last throw of the dice! 🎲🏆 - Peter Cunningham’s MOD70 PowerPlay (CAY), skippered by Ned Collier Wakefield has taken Multihull Line Honours in the 2020 RORC Caribbean 600 just four minutes ahead of Jason Carroll’s MOD70 Argo (USA). - Giovanni Soldini’s Maserati Multi70 (ITA) was third. A nail-biting finish rounded off an epic light airs tactical battle between three of the world’s fastest ocean-going multihulls. During the 600-mile race, the lead changed at least seven times. Maserati fought tooth and nail, but their T-Foil rudders were more of a hindrance than an enhancement in the unusually light conditions. Despite the disadvantage, Maserati came back time and time again to challenge for the lead. PowerPlay and Argo had a full-on 46-hour match race from start to finish and it all came down to the final leg from Redonda to Antigua. - “I gave up counting the number of times the lead changed - I didn’t have enough fingers,” commented PowerPlay’s owner Peter Cunningham. - “It was the most fantastic race. Absolutely unbelievable. The PowerPlay team is fantastic - the organisation and the number of sail changes we had to make all the way through, especially considering the soul-destroying flat spots. You know you come into the hole first and then end up third or fourth - it could change so easily. We had some tough times but nobody worried. We had a bit of a laugh when we had a virtual drink every now and again, plus a chocolate mint when we did well. Argo really were fantastic - right to the end, the boats were so evenly matched.” - Full story via the RORC Caribbean 600 website. - #Caribbean600 📸 RORC / Arthur Daniel

The North South Divide. Tuesday 25th - PM Update. - By dusk on the second day of the RORC Caribbean 600, the entire monohull fleet in the race were at the northern most extremity of the course negotiating the chicane of islands; Saba, St. Barths, and St. Maarten. - Tilmar Hansen’s TP52 Outsider (GER) is estimated to be leading IRC Zero and the race overall for the RORC Caribbean Trophy. Eric de Turckheim’s NMD54 Teasing Machine (FRA) is estimated to be second. In third is one of the smallest boats in the race, Yoyo Gerssen’s Ohlson 35 Cabbyl Vane (NED). - In IRC One, Giles Redpath’s Lombard 46 Pata Negra is top of the rankings. Global Yacht Racing’s First 47.7 EH01, skippered by Andy Middleton is estimated to be the leader of IRC Two after IRC correction. In IRC Two Handed, Richard Palmer’s JPK 10.10 Jangada (GBR), racing with Jeremy Waitt, has the top position. In the Class40 Division BHB, sailed by Arthur Hubert (FRA), has a 15-mile lead. - Multihull Line Honours is expected to be decided tomorrow, Wednesday 26th February. The three leaders are together in the lee of Guadeloupe. Peter Cunningham’s PowerPlay (CAY) led the charge into the wind shadow west of Guadeloupe, with Jason Carroll’s Argo (USA) less than a mile astern. Giovanni Soldini’s Maserati Multi70 (ITA) was some 20 miles behind but has now joined Argo and PowerPlay in the ‘Guadeloupe Casino’. The three teams will be getting ready to let rip after La Desirade for the last 200 miles of the course. - #Caribbean600 📸 RORC/Tim Wright/Arthur Daniel

The Start of IRC Zero and the Multihulls. - The IRC Zero start featuring 17 of the fastest monohulls in the race was highly aggressive. Tilmar Hansen’s TP52 Outsider (GER) was pushing up Johannes Schwartz’s VO70 Green Dragon and subsequently Mills 68 Prospector was squeezed up to cross the line before the gun. Green Dragon just managed to stay behind the line, but Outsider at full speed crossed the line to perfection on the favoured left side of the course. - The Multihull start featured eight teams. Jason Carroll’s MOD70 Argo (USA) got away well on the outer end of the line, a boat length ahead of Peter Cunningham’s MOD70 PowerPlay (CAY). Giovanni Soldini’s Multi70 Maserati chose the inshore end of the line and started well, passing Green Island 33 seconds ahead of Argo. However, the best start in the MOCRA Class was right under the cliffs by Stephen Bourne’s Rapido 60 Ineffable (HKG). Maserati took the inside line and was ahead by Green Island. - Three hours into the race, the leading pack of multihulls was approaching Barbuda. Argo led the charge, followed by PowerPlay and Maserati was a mile astern of the leaders. There is a high expectation of these teams mixing it up over the entire course. - #Caribbean600

Lighter than usual conditions for the RORC Caribbean 600, adding another level of strategy to the fascinating race around 11 Caribbean islands. - "It was a good start, it was always going to be tricky with the light wind, we had six to nine knots of breeze that had a few subtle shifts. The fleet will now be settling in and we have already seen place changes and that is going to be going on right through the race." - "From the RORC perspective, the teams were all in good order before the start in terms of paperwork and safety inspections. We wish them all a safe race." RORC Racing Manager, Chris Stone. - #Caribbean600

The start of 2020 RORC Caribbean 600! 🤩 - Sparkling conditions prevailed for the start of the 12th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600, organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club. The impressive 73-boat fleet gathered outside Antigua’s English Harbour, relishing the prospect of racing 600nm in stunning conditions. - A light south easterly breeze gave a gentle start to the race, but the fierce competition was exemplified by highly competitive starts right through the fleet. - #Caribbean600
