Day Four AM Race Report: Louay Habib

Just after dusk at 19:34:34, Ron O'Hanley's American Cookson 50, Privateer came through the finish line off English Harbour, Antigua. The 12 crew were tired and hungry but most of all thirsty for knowledge. The team from Newport, Rhode Island, USA knew it was close...too close to call. They had sailed their socks off and knew they were in with a chance of winning the coveted RORC Caribbean 600 Trophy. A tired but elated crew on Ron O'Hanley's Cookson 50, Privateer - Credit:  »

Louay Habib - 0700 (local time) Day Three RORC Caribbean 600

Just before dawn, Peter Aschenbrenner's American 63ft Trimaran, Paradox powered through the finish line to complete the 600-mile course in less than two days. Conditions have been fresh to frightening right from the start and there has been no let up for over 500 sailors battling through exciting yet tough conditions. Next to finish will be Mike Slade's British maxi, ICAP Leopard to claim Monohull Line Honours, however ICAP Leopard experienced a slow passage to the south of Guadeloupe, preventing the team from getting near the course record.

Race Report By: Louay Habib

A flash of smoke, high above the 'Pillars of Hercules' announced the start of the 5th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. Before the start 25 knots of trade winds, gusting close to 30, provided feisty conditions. 53 yachts blasted into action, crashing to windward through the surf in the starting area. The international fleet, with crews from 31 nations, set off for the 600-mile race threading through 11 stunning Caribbean islands and the forecast strong winds promises a wild and memorable ride. tart of IRC Zero and Canting Keel RORC Caribbean 600 - Credit: Tim Wright/  »
