Rolex Middle Sea Race – Elite Yachting in a Stunning Setting:

The start of the Rolex Middle Sea Race in Valletta’s Grand Harbour in Malta is marked by the firing of cannons from the bastions of the city. This 608-nautical-mile offshore race follows one of the most scenic courses in the world, passing through the Strait of Messina, around Stromboli’s volcanic shores, and on to the Aeolian and Egadi Islands, as well as Pantelleria before returning to Malta for a spectacular finish. The race through this stunning backdrop in often changeable conditions is considered a true challenge for skippers and crews. Video above published Oct 14, 2016.
