RORC CARIBBEAN 600: BAM SAILS TO WIN HER CLASS
BAM wins her class in RORC Caribbean 600 crediting North Sails speed and reliability
Conor Fogerty, skippering the smallest boat in the fleet, his Jeanneau SunFast 3600 BAM, won his class in the RORC Carribean 600. The race was very windy with Conor and his team emerging victorious after five days of wet and wild racing. Conor has been working on his sail inventory with Maurice (“Prof”) O’Connell from North Sails Ireland since the first launch of “BAM” in 2015, notching up an OSTAR win and a previous class win in the C600 in 2016. He took delivery of a new 3Di offshore main just prior to the C600 this year.
Speaking after the race Conor was fulsome in his praise of North Sails ;
“The new main is perfect, it was great to be able to totally rely on our sails, whilst boats around us dropped off due to sail failure. “BAM” returned to Antigua with a full intact wardrobe, and a class win which were are delighted with!”
Congratulations also to the HYC team on Pata Negra who finished 2nd in their class. Great racing for Irish offshore teams!
