With just over one month to go until the start of the 2023 RORC Transatlantic Race, Marina Lanzarote is ready to receive the international fleet which will set off on Sunday 8th of January for the 3,000-mile race across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean spice island of Grenada.
More than 20 race boats from seven different nations are expected, including six Maxis and three of the world’s fastest ocean-going multihulls. For the second year, the RORC Transatlantic Race is supported by the Yacht Club de France, and close to half of the 2023 fleet will be flying the French tricolour in Marina Lanzarote. Supported by Calero Marinas since the first race in 2014, the event is one that all the team in Lanzarote look forward to with passion and commitment.
The RORC Transatlantic Race is part of the RORC Caribbean Series where IRC rated boats with the best combined score, in both the 2023 Transatlantic Race and 2023 RORC Caribbean 600, claims the series trophy.
Racing across the Atlantic is on the bucket-list of any serious offshore sailor and every sailor that completes the 3,000-mile race is also eligible to join the Royal Ocean Racing Club.
