Last year's overall winner ''LUCKY'' coming through the Comino Channel on its way home towards the finish
''ARTIE'' (local Maltese boat and crew) came 2nd overall after a nail biting race and finish just missing a first overall placing by around 26 minutes
''SEAWOLF'' has become a very familiar face on the RMSR and is back again this year to take on the challenge of this great race
Once again the Rolex Middle Sea Race will be starting off from the Grand Harbour in Valletta next Saturday 22nd October 2011. It will, no doubt, be a spectacle to watch with the original and historic back drop of the bastions and surrounding creeks in this natural historic harbour.
There are, at present, 80 entrants of which are many well known names of skippers and yachts.
This year yachts are moored at the Grand Harbour Marina in Birgu and a couple of pontoons have also been laid off the Yacht Club in Ta'Xbiex for the smaller classed yachts.
The RMSR website has a tracker which enables enthusiasts to follow the race closely as they make their way around the most interesting offshore race in the Mediterranean (if not the world).
