North Sails NEWS


A Strong Showing For North-Powered Teams. Here’s Our Race Recap

The RORC Caribbean 600 is a much-anticipated event on the winter sailing schedule. With pro teams and amateurs alike gunning for victory, the combination of North Sails products, on-island support, and expertise is proven to deliver results.

For the 13th edition of the race, North Sails was on board for a new multihull race record, multi and monohull line honors, and held a commanding presence amongst the fleet claiming 70% of the possible podium positions. And to top it off, Warrior Won’s 3Di sails carried owner Chris Sheehan and crew to the top of the overall leaderboard

A navigational channel in, out, and around eleven islands in almost perfect condition, the race is as much a showcase for sailing as it is for the Caribbean’s beautiful islands.

“There is a reasonable amount of reaching in the 600-mile course, and it becomes a real test of a sail’s range,” explains Andrew Dove, manager of North Sails Antigua. “Our Helix Structured Luff Code Sails can make a huge difference here. Many of the legs are challenging, with conditions varying amount different islands; a hallmark of the race and a true test of a sails range. This is where 3Di and Helix sails excel.”

We’re incredibly proud of the North-powered results; they’re overwhelming in the best way and inspire us to keep coming back for more.
