Malta Events – Rolex Middle Sea Race 2012

The 33rd edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race started on October 20th 2012 .

The Route

From the Grand Harbour, Valletta, beneath Fort St Angelo and the Saluting Battery in Valletta the fleet heads north along the eastern coasts of Sicily up towards the Straits of Messina. Mt Etna is usually visible on the fleets port side, billowing ashes and lava throughout the night. Once through the Straits, the course leads north to the Aeolian Islands and the active volcano of Stromboli where the yachts turn west to the Egadi Islands. Passing between Marettimo and Favignana the crews head south towards the island of Lampedusa leaving Pantelleria to port. Once past Lampedusa the fleet turns northeast on the final leg towards the South Comino Channel and finish at Marsamxett Harbour. En route the crews take in an amazing diversity of landscape and sea conditions, all of which combine to create the attraction and challenge of the race.
A prizegiving ceremony will take place on the 27th October.
