Wednesday was the traditional RMSR coastal race. This year a slightly different course to the round Comino or round Filfla route was set with it being more of an extended 'marker buoys' course on the south eastern part of the island. Winds were westerly light to the light side of moderate with 31 boats registered for the race but it seems that it was 23 boats actually competing.
This was an excellent start to the week for Maltese boat ELUSIVE (Beneteau First 45) who came in first overall on corrected time. In 2nd and 3rd place respectively were JIVARO (J133) and locally based Xpedite (XP44).
