The first boats are in after a pretty light wind edition of the Middle Sea Race this year. First boat in was the German Maxi ''Morning Glory'' which led the fleet all the way thus claiming line honours. Next boats in were Alegre and Robertissima III.
Quite a few of the larger boats have now finshed and the smaller members of the fleet are on their way to Lampedusa.
First Maltese boat ahead right now is Juno closely followed by Otra Vez, though Otra Vez is ahead on handicap.
Unfortunately ARTIE, one of the hot favourites, did not manage to get out of the windless hole early enough to be up amongst the front runners of their class and are only just passing by Pantelleria as I type. That's racing!
The rest of the fleet are expected to finish within the next 24/36 hours.
