Courrier Recommande Wins 2018 Rolex Middle Sea Race

The weather during the Rolex Middle Sea Race has a reputation of being as varied as the race course is. This year was no different with a moderate to windy start going into extremely light conditions up the East coast of Sicily and once rounding Stromboli facing extreme squalls throughout the night and heading into strong winds for the remainder of the course back to Malta.
This year  ''Courrier Recommande'' ( a JPK 11.80) won the coveted overal IRC prize with last year's overall winner, ''Bogatyr'', taking the 1st prize for the double handed class.
