RORC Caribbean 600: Rambler 88 first, but Bella Mente wants to spoil his party

Headingtoward the final stages in Antigua is the RORC Carribean 600. What thrilled the fans was the great duel for real-time victory among the multihulls: Maserati and Phaedo 3 battled side by side throughout the course, and the Italian trimaran’s progress was thus confirmed which managed to stay glued to, in some cases even ahead of, the more broken-in Phaedo 3. The victory went to the American Multi, but the rematch is only postponed. In the video below is a moment from the battle.

Among monohulls, line honors were won instead by George David’s Rambler 88, which boasted Brad Butterworth as tactician and finished the course in 2 days, 36 minutes and 17 seconds. Rambler 88 looks like a candidate to occupy a place among the top five in IRC Overall, the ranking that will award the overall winner of the regatta.

In this regard, Hap Fauth’s JV 72 Bella Mente, which in real time finished the race in 2 days, 5 hours, 31 minutes and 46 seconds, seems highly credited for the handicap victory. In the provisional compensated time ranking Bella Mente is ahead of Maxi 72 Proteus and Rambler 88, but much of the fleet has yet to reach the finish line.
