"The RORC has had a long and fruitful relationship with Sevenstar through its title sponsorship of the quadrennial Round Britain and Ireland Race. We are delighted that it has extended this partnership by becoming the logistics provider for the incredibly successful RORC Caribbean 600, with the ability to provide cost-effective shipping solutions for boats travelling from Europe and America," says RORC Commodore Michael Boyd.
Sevenstar is an experienced company in the transport of yachts and equipment all around the world, and has added the Racing Yacht Logistics division to specifically cater for the yacht racing community.
Although Sevenstar operates worldwide, much of its business involves shipping to and from the Caribbean and Sevenstar Racing Yacht Logistics will offer competitors a team of experts to advise on race yacht transport. The new division will also ship other essential racing equipment, including spares, masts and RIBs, making sure that teams are fully race-ready by the time the start gun goes off.
"Sevenstar Yacht Transport is delighted to continue its association with the RORC, to add to its title sponsorship of the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race. We look forward to being the Official Logistics Partner of the RORC Caribbean 600 and are ready to be of service to its competitors," says pro-sailor and Head of Sevenstar Racing Yacht Logistics Wouter Verbraak.
The RORC Caribbean 600 is a challenging and tactical 600-mile race that takes competitors around some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. This ninth edition attracts an unprecedented fleet, featuring many of the world's most spectacular and high profile boats and crews, with race teams flying in from all around the world. These include Volvo Ocean Race, America's Cup and world-class sailors, along with RORC offshore racers and passionate adventurers.
