RORC Caribbean 600 – Antigua ANT – a new record for Maserati

Fresh winds prevailed on Antigua last Monday at the start of the 600-mile-race around a number of Caribbean islands. Here the video of the start. Among the participants was Argo, the MOD-70-catamaran of Jason Carroll USA after her capsize a few days ago, with François Gabart FRA as special guest. His multihull Argo and the MOD-70 Maserati of Giovanni Soldini ITA fighted neck and neck and the Italians had finally the upper hand winning in the new record time of 1 day, 6 hours and 49 minutes with a 7 minutes advantage on Argo. In the monohulls, the VOR70 Wizard, steered by Charlie Enright USA finished first. The news and the ranking lists. The majority of the fleet is still underway.
