Rolex Middle Sea Race: Two Days Left!
Next Saturday – the day after tomorrow! – in Valletta (Malta) starts the famous Rolex Middle Sea Race. This year, the amazingly beautiful 607-mile race around Sicily is held for the jubilee, 40th time. So – with the upcoming holiday!
The race record set a year ago – 130 ships – this time will not be broken. But there are only slightly fewer yachts, and the struggle for awards, no doubt, will be fierce as always. I would like to believe that in this struggle, yachts flying the Russian flag will take an active part. Of which we counted 11 in the list of applicants. And all in this list are vessels representing 23 countries.
On Wednesday, 47 yachts took part in a coastal training race in Valletta. Then the photographer Kurt Arrigo made the photos that we bring to your attention.
