Rolex Middle Sea Race

The Rolex Middle Sea Race rarely does things in a small way - too much wind, not
enough wind; not one, but two active volcanoes on the course; whirlpools and tidal
gates; fast races, slow races. This is a course long on stories and adventures,
short on the mundane and routine. This year looks to be no different. As of close of
entries, eighty boats from twenty nations have registered. If all cross the
start-line in Marsamxett Harbour on 18th October a new entry-record will have been
set, eclipsing the previous best of sixty-eight in 2006.
