The IMA Caribbean Maxi Challenge 2022
Great News for the upcoming Caribbean Season ahead …
The International Maxi Association (IMA) is to hold its first Caribbean Maxi Challenge series in 2022,
with one offshore and three inshore Races, open to all Maxi Yachts of 60ft + LOA.
This is such a positive step to help the Caribbean and all event organisers bounce back from the pandemic, encouraging Maxi Yacht owners to include the Caribbean in their year’s planning, competing within a more formalised structure.
The RORC Transatlantic Race from Puerto Calero, Lanzarote to Port Louis Marina, Grenada starting on the 8th January, is almost like a 'Feeder race', with a record 29 teams entered for this 3000 mile race!
