The multihull record for the Caribbean 600 was set in 2009 by the ORMA 60 trimaran Region Guadaloupe. It narrowly escaped being bettered in 2013 by the flying cruiser/racer trimaran Paradox who fell short by about 11 minutes. This year the MOD70 Phaedo3 (Ex Foncia) will be having a crack at the record and the now turboed Paradox sporting foil assist and an increased sail area with a new extended bowsprit will compete to attempt to claim the crown.

Weather forecast indicates a reach for a fair bit of the course but lower wind velocity than would be ideal for these big tri's.
