38th Edition Rolex Middle Sea Race to kick off on Saturday 21st October 2017

31 December 2016

Registrations to open on 1st January

With the 2016 edition, well and truly wrapped up, preparations have already started for the next edition which will start on Saturday 21st October 2017.

Entries may be submitted through the event website from Sunday 1st January 2017.

In the 2016 Rolex Middle Sea Race, 107 teams representing 25 different nations were on the starting line in the iconic Grand Harbour.

As another epic adventure unfolded, the 2016 race will be remembered as a race of multiple dimensions, with the only constant being the inconsistency in the wind. Generally light for the first 24 hours, what ensued was as wide in its variety as it was complex to master. The 608 nautical miles will be recalled more for testing mental strength than physical prowess. 

Recipient of the Rolex Chronometer and Rolex Middle Sea Race trophy as Overall Winner was Vincenzo Onorato's Italian Cookson 50 Mascalzone Latino. Sweet success having lost out by just nine seconds the year before. George David's Rambler 88 from the United States took Monohull Line Honours for the second year in a row and Giovanni Soldini's Italian Multi70 Maserati won the Multihull class setting a new race record in this category. 

The monohull course record set in 2007 by George David on Rambler still stands.

The Royal Malta Yacht Club looks forward to welcoming all participants in October and wishes you all a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
