Hundreds of images from the Caribbean 600 Regatta 2011


Today we were chartered by to follow the RORC Caribbean 600. Acquafilms were shooting video for Antigua Sailing week and I was shooting stills. Here are two slide shows of photos taken at the Start of the Caribbean 600 regatta and from the reaching leg from Green Island to Barbuda. Today the winds were blowing hard at the start of the RORC Caribbean 600 sailing regatta. With squalls passing through it was blowing up to 30 knots and it was a real reality check for some racers who were just starting what will be 600 miles of hard core yacht racing through the Eastern Caribbean islands. The 100 foot long RAMBLER was way way faster than all the other yachts as she screamed over towards Barbuda after passing Green Island. Our boat Xtreme is 45 ft long and has tripple four stroke 225 hp engines. We had a tough time keeping up with Rambler as she screamed at speeds of up to 28 knots in 8 foot seas. If you would like more info on the regatta and would like to follow the yachts live check this link.
All of the images below are available in high res digital files. Call or text me on +1 268 725 7263 if you would like to use them.

Thanks for the great images Eli. I have been sailing lots. We are headed to St. Maarten next week so we most likely meet lots of those boats there. Great job on your blog.

Stay happy and take care
