RORC RTR Trophies

The Silverware awaiting the top teams at Port Louis Marina, Grenada. Lloyd Thornburg’s MOD70, Phaedo3 was the first boat to arrive and set the multihull race record of 5 days 22 hours 46 minutes 03 seconds

“Competitors in the RORC Transatlantic Race fleet can expect a ‘hero’s welcome’ on arrival in Grenada”, says Glynn Thomas, General Manager of Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina whose team is looking forward to welcoming the fleet for the third consecutive year:

“The RORC Transatlantic is a very special race that appeals to die-hard sailors not afraid of a challenge. It’s great to have them in the marina and listen to their many stories over a glass of rum or two after their epic journey. I’m looking forward to welcoming new competitors, as well as familiar faces returning.’”

As always Port Louis Marina will ensure the RORC Transatlantic Race is concluded in style at the marina’s very own Victory Bar & Restaurant for the final party and Prize Giving on Tuesday 13th December.

Port Louis Marina, in the heart of the colour and bustle of St George’s, offering easy access to a wide variety of experiences such as white sandy beaches, waterfalls, tropical rainforests and good restaurants. It’s also the perfect time of year to arrive on the ‘spice island’ of Grenada and those who’ve spent the festive season in the Caribbean, will know how much fun it really is. Grenada has by far the most joyful and jubilant celebrations of all the islands and this year it will be outdoing itself with a packed schedule of events.

Crews can stay around and head to the Grenadines between 16th -18th December to visit the beautiful island of Carriacou to witness the annual Carriacou Parang Festival: rich with traditional culture, before heading back to Grenada to enjoy the island’s famous festivities over Christmas & New Year’s Eve.
