3. ISBJORN: RORC Caribbean 600 // 600 Miles & 10 Days // $4,000 // WAITLIST

$4,000.00 / 10 Days

We're back, baby!

Join Andy Schell & Paul Exner, with Liz Karamavros & Lee Cumberland, for a high-level ocean racing program in 2019 in the heart of the Caribbean. Sail alongside the big boys, from the classic schooners to the MOD70 trimarans and super maxis like Rambler 88 and Comanche. We're in it for the fun and the challenge of successfully completing one of the toughest courses on the ocean racing circuit.

We've just opened this trip, so there will be more details to follow once we flesh out this page, and it'll be a bit different from our standard offshore passages in what's on offer. In the meantime, visit to learn more about the event.

Also, check out the video from the 2017 RORC Caribbean 600 made by crew member Brian Bonter.
