Apologies but do not know who took the above photos - I think they may be official Rolex ones
ARTIE has had a well deserved mention in the latest write up about the upcoming ROLEX GIRAGLIA in June in Regatta News . This is what they said:
''There are always newcomers on the start list, but few will match the pedigree of the 40-foot (MLT), owned by Lee Satariano and co-skippered by Christian Ripard. In their previous competitive offshore outing the combination were the first Maltese in ten years to win the hugely demanding 606-nm Rolex Middle Sea Race. This is Satariano’s first venture away from home waters, something he is looking forward to, “it will be a great challenge, but we’re all up for it. The most important characteristic we possess is a motivated crew. After that consistency is a major factor, as is good preparation.”

The ARTIE crew will be leaving at the beginning of June - a new event they are looking forward to and another to add to their increasing list of experience as a team.
