Antigua and Barbuda to Host RORC Caribbean 600 For Next For Years 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 2, 2022

Antigua and Barbuda has signed an agreement to host the prestigious RORC Caribbean 600 for another four years. 

The renewal “means that the destination will continue to attract sailing elite and promising sailors, building Antigua and Barbuda’s reputation as the ‘Sailing Capital of the Caribbean,’” the country’s Ministry of Tourism said in a statement. 

The agreement was signed by Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Minister Charles Fernandez, Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority CEO Colin C. James and Royal Ocean Race Club CEO Jeremy Wilton. 

Antigua has been making it a priority to cultivate the sailing and yachting sectors as a means of economic development. 

“We continue to globally promote and position Antigua and Barbuda as a safe and picturesque location for the sailing community to enjoy local, regional and international regattas throughout the year,” Fernandez said. “We are also thrilled to have opportunities where we can expose our Antiguan and Barbudan talent and spotlight their performance, as was seen in this year’s race.”

This year’s RORC Caribbean 600 attracted 74 teams with 738 sailors hailing from 32 different nations.
