Adventure offered by Germaine

11 days
Available in English
Germaine
The Royal Ocean Racing Club’s Caribbean 600 is one of the great ‘600 mile’ ocean race challenges.
The race annually attracts a great range of yachts from the latest IRC designs to big classics and schooners, and has grown up to become a ‘must do’ offshore classic.
Its tropical setting might make it more inviting but the Caribbean 600 does not lack its set of challenges with one of the most interesting offshore courses to be found anywhere on the world. This 600 nautical mile race circumnavigates 11 Caribbean Islands starting from English Harbour, Antigua and then heads north as far as St Martin and south to Guadeloupe taking in Barbuda, Nevis, St Kitts, Saba and St Barth’s. This is not one for the fainted hearted.
There are four days training prior to the race included. This time will allow you to get to know your team mates at boat train to give you the best chances to win the race!
We're looking for people with some sailing experience, though we are happy to talk with anyone with a competitive sense of fun and adventure as we believe we'll be able to teach you the ropes, so to speak!

As an RYA Instructor Germaine enjoys passing on his experience to others and finding ways of sharing his passion for this sport with as many people as possible. This is what inspired him to create a not for profit organisation that gives people the opportunities that normally allude them. An excellent problem solver
