The Rolex Middle Sea Race is a highly rated offshore classic and is a “must do” race. With the spectacular Marsamxett Harbour as its backdrop this year’s edition will start on the 17th October. The race is a true challenge to skippers and crews who have to be at their very best to cope with the often changeable and demanding conditions. Equally, the race is blessed with unsurpassed scenery with its course, taking competitors close to a number of islands, which form marks of the course. Ted Turner described the Middle Sea Race as “the most beautiful race course in the world.”
