RORC Caribbean 600 Course

Talk about perfect timing. This week Greg heads out to the sunshine and warm weather in Antigua for the RORC Caribbean 600 with the Spitfire crew. It’s safe to say we’re all a little jealous as weather in Toronto has become way too cold for our liking.

The Spitfire crew will race on Jonathan Bamberger’s new Farr 45 for the 600nm non-stop race around 11 Caribbean Islands. The boat is stocked with all new sails from Evolution including a new mainsail, code zero, reacher, and A3.

Launched in 2005, Spitfire is a high performance sailing team based in Toronto out of The National Yacht Club. The Spitfire program races competitively around the world with owner/driver Jonathan Bamberger at the helm and a team of high-performance sailors onboard. 

This year’s race is stacked with the World’s best and has a record number of entries with around 80 yachts, a 20% increase compared to last year. It’s going to be an exciting race yet again, especially with Comanche making her debut in the race!

Best of luck to Greg and the Spitfire crew!

Race starts February 22nd, stay tuned for more updates!
