Sail-World.com : RORC Caribbean 600 - Fifth edition underway with a bang!: " . . . fifth edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 got underway with a flash of smoke, high above the 'Pillars of Hercules'. Before the start, 25 knots of trade winds, gusting close to thirty, 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. 'This is going to be a fast and fairly tough race,' commented RORC CEO, Eddie Warden Owen, prior to the start. 'All the teams are aware of the forecast and they know it is going to be breezy and how they handle those conditions will have a big impact on their performance. They will be excited but also apprehensive about the conditions. However, watching the start I have to say it was stunning, sunshine, beautiful warm water, they are all going to have a fantastic race.'. . . "
