Starting from the beautiful island of Lanzarote in the Canaries, this year will be the ninth edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race organised in conjunction with the International Maxi Association and the Yacht Club de France. Before the race, boats will be hosted by Puerto Calero's Marina Lanzarote and will enjoy evenings of local entertainment. Once started, boats will wind their way through the scenic Canary Islands before setting out west across the Atlantic for glorious trade wind sailing. Nearly 3000 miles later they will arrive in Grenada to be greeted in style by the sunshine and local hospitality during their stay in the Camper Nicholsons Port Louis Marina. The RORC Transatlantic Race is the must do competitive race for boats looking do the Caribbean season.
