Full Schedule

Join the Ocean Racers team for one of our favorite offshore races -- the Caribbean 600! 

The beautiful route takes racers on a 600-mile course around eleven Caribbean islands. This is the only true annual offshore race in the West Indies, attracting professional teams from around the world to compete in paradise. But don’t let the backdrop fool you, this will be a challenging competition filled with strong winds, acceleration zones and arduous wind shadows.

The race begins just outside of English Harbour in Antigua. The fleet will then head north, passing marks off Barbuda, Nevis, Saba and St Barth’s before circling St Maarten and heading south for Guadeloupe. A brief sprint back north to a mark off Barbuda, then back to Antigua for the finish.

The competition is gearing up to be fierce. Expect to compete against former Volvo Ocean Race champions as well as the Volvo 60 & 70 models.  The start-line will be filled with more icons, old and new, from the twin-masted 182ft schooner Adela (1903) to the record-breaking MOD70 Phaedo³.

This race is suitable for those with prior racing or offshore sailing experience. Those without racing or offshore experience are recommended to join one of our cruises instead or arrange earlier training in NYC or the Caribbean.
