Does the Caribbean 1500 have at least two different classes. Racing and cruising?
The ARC has but they all have results (I mean the cruising division and the race division) so I guess the cruising division is a kind of not too serious race for amateurs/cruisers while the racing class is a more sportive event.

On the Caribbean 1500 it seems that there are not a racing division but only a cruising division, maybe because there are much less boats and not properly cruiser racers or racing boats as on the ARC
