The RORC Caribbean 600 is growing from strength to strength and turning into one of the true classic offshore races. The Royal Ocean Racing Club, which will host the Caribbean 600 race, confirmed 44 entries so far but anticipates around 50 on the start line in Antigua on Monday 18th February.

So far, there are nine US entries with Cam Lewis' Paradox and a couple of other US boats set to participate.
