The 600-mile course around 11 islands features twists and turns with virtually no down time on any leg. Factor in the Caribbean conditions, ocean swell, tropical temperatures, and stunning vistas, and the RORC Caribbean 600 is hard to resist – it's the Monaco for offshore racing multihulls.
Last year, the multihull battle made headline news even before the race. Forty-eight hours before the start, MOD70 Argo capsized in training.
