The Rolex Middle Sea Race is 608 nautical miles long and sailed anti-clockwise, the race begins in Marsamxett Harbour, north of the Grand Harbour, Valletta. The fleet heads North along the Eastern coasts of Sicily up towards the Straits of Messina, where Mt.Etna is visible on the fleet’s port side. Once through the Straits, the course leads north to the Aeolian Islands and the active volcano of Stromboli where the yachts turn West to the Egadi Islands. Passing between Marettimo and Favignana the crews head south towards the island of Lampedusa leaving Pantelleria to port. Finish the race in spectacular surroundings back on Malta as you pass beneath Fort St Angelo and the Saluting Battery in Valletta.
