The overall winner of the 14th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 was Roy P. Disney’s Volvo 70 Pyewacket 70 (USA).

“Pyewacket 70 doesn’t go into these races necessarily thinking that a corrected time win is our goal, we go for Line Honours and potentially to set a new record. So, when a handicap win comes that is fantastic,” commented skipper Ben Mitchell. “This win is right up there with the biggest victories, and Pyewacket has had a lot of success with the programme. In recent years the RORC Caribbean 600 victory is right up there.”

Pyewacket 70 Crew: Ben Mitchell, Peter Isler, Tony Mutter, Brad Jackson, Brian Janney, Daryl Wislang, David Tank, Jan Majer, Mark Callahan, Matt Mialik, Robbie Kane, Rodney Daniel, Tristan Louwrens.

In this other photo the perspective might indicate that Pyewacket is about to t-bone second place finisher I Love Poland, but that’s just the telephoto image (isn’t it?).
