2022 is the 12th Anniversary of what is quickly becoming one of the favourite offshore races on the international RORC circuit. The 600nm course – which resembles something drawn by a toddler – starts just off Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua and then meanders northbound through the island, before taking a sharp turn South at St. Martin. If the trade winds are doing what they should (they definitely weren’t in 2017…!) it’s spinnakers up for the longest leg in the race, down to Guadalupe. Passing around the south of the French island, crews battle to avoid a formidable wind shadow, before passing Antigua for one final victory lap back to Barbuda, a quick gybe at Redonda, then finishing back at Nelson’s Dockyard.

If you haven’t raced offshore in the Caribbean before, this is a must – sleeping on the rail is a lot less grim when the temperatures are in the mid-20s! This is one to race hard and party even harder, as the social afterwards in Antigua is legendary.
