The RORC TransAtlantic race is the is the newest and lengthiest offshore race in the RORC programme, starting in Lanzarote and finishing 2995nm later in Port Louis Marina, Grenada. The Royal Ocean Racing Club have announced a new start date for the 7th edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race. Traditionally held in November each year from Lanzarote to Grenada, the next edition will start from Calero Marinas Puerto Calero on the 9th January 2021 and once again finish at Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina in Grenada.
The course takes the competitors through the Canary Islands, with their reputation for large acceleration zones and big waves, before heading out across the Atlantic Ocean.
The race has established itself as the definitive offshore transatlantic race bound for the Caribbean and attracts a competitive and diverse fleet of yachts and sailors from around the world.
With RORC focused on maintaining a safe and high quality race, crew must be able to prove offshore sailing experience with a minimum of 50% of the crew having sailed 500nm offshore in the previous 18 months. We can arrange a whole boat charter for the race, or even help you get some mileage to join as an individual crew member.
