RORC CARIBBEAN 600 RACE: HH66-01 R-Six met some fierce competition at this year’s Caribbean 600 but performed well in this grueling race. The two, purpose-built mod 70 racing trimarans, Phaedo 3 and Maserati, took first and second place almost breaking the race record. R-six come in a very respectable 3rd. Though barely 24 hours off the back of a trans-Atlantic crossing, R-Six team 6601 managed to turn the boat around and ready her for the 600-mile blast around 11 Caribbean islands. This was true testament to the durability, character and strength of both crew and boat. The Caribbean 600 was the team’s qualifying race for the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s famous Fastnet Race, due to take place in the UK in August this year.
