Gill NA supports RORC Caribbean 600

30 January 2015

The Royal Ocean Racing Club is pleased to announce its partnership with Gill North America as official crew merchandise provider for the 7th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600, starting in Antigua on Monday 23 February.

With around 60 international race teams taking part in the Caribbean's only offshore race, competition will be strong as the event attracts some of the world's leading sailors as well as fastest boats. The 600 mile route weaves round 11 Caribbean islands and the tough race is often referred to as the Caribbean Fastnet, so competitors will rely on technical race gear they can trust, as well as more casual shoreside clothing to see them through.

Gill NA is delighted to support the RORC Caribbean 600 this year," says David Pritchard, President of Gill North America. "We have created a RORC Caribbean 600 collection of Gill cotton's and UPF50 plus technical shirts, shorts and hats that will be available for purchase online and on site during the event. Gill products are ideally suited for Caribbean sailing use. Good luck to all our 600 racer friends!"

Nick Elliott, RORC Racing Manager confirmed: "We are pleased to have teamed up with Gill North America to offer a fantastic range of both technical race gear and cotton polos and rugby shirts. They are available to order online and can either be posted directly to competitors or they can be bought now and collected on arrival in Antigua."

During the race a Gill Store will be located in the car park at the Antigua Yacht Club. The store will be open from Thursday 19th February to early Monday morning of the 23rd February (day of the start). It will then reopen as the first arrivals come in until Saturday 28th February.

The stock is also on sale now until the 18th February upstairs at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina in the Antigua and Barbuda Marine Association office. Office hours are 0830 - 1630 Monday to Friday (closed on Bank Holidays).
