1307

Jason Carroll’s MOD70 Argo (USA) has taken Multihull Line Honours in the 2024 Caribbean 600 in an elapsed time of 01 Day 08 Hrs 08 Mins and 40 Secs. Argo Crew: Jason Carroll, Weston Barlow, Chad Corning, Pete Cumming, Sam Goodchild, Chris Maxted, Charlie Ogletree, Brian Thompson.

Erik Maris’ MOD70 Zoulou (FRA) was the second boat to finish the RORC Caribbean 600 and was just 19 minutes behind Zoulou after over 32 hours of intense racing. Alexia Barrier’s MOD70 Limosa – The Famous Project (FRA), co-skippered by Dee Caffari, completed the Multihull Line Honours podium, finishing the race less than four hours behind Argo. “This year’s race is like any other; it isn’t over until the final beat,” commented Argo’s Jason Carroll.

“This year, we may not have had many lead changes, but Zoulou was right behind us at every single turn. Zoulou was forever closing in on us and we had to keep finding ways to protect our position. Honestly, I think Zoulou has shown a big step up in performance since the RORC Transatlantic Race; they were faster than us in a few situations. Limosa – The Famous Project has also shown a big improvement, which is great for them. They were very close with us and Zoulou the entire time; it’s great to see them refining their performance.”
