The crew list on Jim Clark & Kristy Hinze Clark's American Maxi reads like a who's who of stars from the America's Cup and Volvo Ocean Race. Stan Honey and Kelvin Harrap form the afterguard for skipper Ken Read, who has gone on record to say that subject to the right conditions, Comanche can break the course record. "Technically, Comanche is 10 years newer than Rambler 100 and not wishing to sound over the top, we should have a bit of an edge in every condition, but tell me what the weather conditions will be and I will give you our finish time," commented Ken Read.Lloyd Thornburg's American MOD 70 Phaedo3 is back to defend their record but will be up against stiff competition; Tony Lawson's British MOD 70 Concise 10, skippered by Ned Collier Wakefield. Phaedo3 co-skipper and Jules Verne record holder, Brian Thompson is joined by Volvo Ocean Race winner, Robert Greenhalgh and Extreme 40 champion, Pete Cumming. Phaedo3 has set four phenomenal world speed records since the last RORC Caribbean 600 and a new record for the RORC Transatlantic Race, beating Concise 10 by just two and a half hours after six days of racing. In their latest encounter, Concise 10 beat Phaedo3 in the Round Barbados Race by just 12 seconds! For the RORC Caribbean 600, young British skipper Ned Collier Wakefield will be joined by the world speed record holder, Paul Larsen and Michel Desjoyeux, the only sailor to have won the Vendée Globe twice.
