RAN - as things stand right now I think they may have a good chance of winning the overall - all depends on whether the wind picks up a bit around our shores. At the moment it is all guess work who will actually win the overall prize. Pic: Kurt Arrigo for RMSR
Plagued by light wind conditions Class 3 and 4 yachts are now approaching the Comino Channel on their final leg back home. ARTIE is really pushing to be first Maltese boat back home - quite a coveted prize - but they have quite a few Maltese contenders hot on their heels. They are still pushing as hard as they can to increase their lead to enable them to pass AOC ROCKALL on corrected time. It has been a slow race and now it has become nailbiting as they sail in towards the finish line. All our Maltese crews have done amazingly well racing against such a high calibre of world sailor and I know I speak on behalf of many many locals when I say we are proud of them all and have shown visiting sailors that they are tough competition on the water.
