more details for this yacht

 

The Swan 82 "ALPINA" is an up to date expression of the fast Maxi-cruiser concept. She is the result of accumulated knowledge, yet drawn afresh. The vessel is a modern sailing yacht built to be fast, yet be perfectly in keeping with company’s traditional core values: elegant lines, luxurious interiors, ease of handling and reliability. Her performance oriented hull and clean deck layout mask comfortable internal volume and a wealth of technical features that combine to offer outstanding long range cruising capabilities.The Frers-designed Swan 82 "ALPINA" is a boat that is intended to be both a racing and a cruising boat. ALPINA is a centered-midcockpit Swan 80 version, a good layout for racing or cruising.The accommodations plan of this yacht is divided into paid-crew and owner’s-party areas. Aft of the mast the accommodations are laid out for an owner’s party of three couples. Only the aft stateroom has a double berth, but each stateroom has its own head. The Swan 80 comes with a carbon fiber mast.

 

 

The RORC Caribbean 600, as the name suggests, is a 600 mile race around the Caribbean islands. The RORC Caribbean 600 starts and finishes in Antigua, the competing yachts pass 14 magnificent islands in the central Caribbean. Some of the best sailing grounds in the world are blessed with stunning scenery, including the remote cliffs of Saba, the white sandy beaches of Barbuda and the twisted volcanic rock faces of Montserrat. The turquoise sea, blessed by the Trade Winds, produces exhilarating sailing conditions and whales, dolphins and turtles are a common sight. By night the competitors race in warm breeze under a carpet of stars, seldom seen with such clarity.  

The 6th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 is proving irresistible to yacht racing teams from all over the world. An international fleet of over 40 yachts has now entered the race and around 50 are expected on the start line on Monday 24th February.The northern hemisphere is currently experiencing some of the worst winter weather on record but well over 500 sailors are rubbing their hands together, relishing the prospect of racing around 11 Caribbean islands against highly competitive opposition. The Caribbean is, without doubt, one of yacht racing's most exhilarating playgrounds as warm trade winds and Caribbean swell provide superb sailing conditions.
