The 2018 golden jubilee edition of Malta’s most famous yachting event promises to be the biggest ever. The Rolex Middle Sea Race, which this year marks the 50th anniversary of its founding, will again start from the historic Grand Harbour, in the capital Valletta, on 20 October. Cannon fire from the Saluting Battery perched high above will launch the fleet on a 606-nautical mile adventure around some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful yet challenging waters.
This year represents a significant milestone for Title Sponsor Rolex, marking six decades of partnership at the pinnacle of the sport. The Rolex Middle Sea Race, organized by the Royal Malta Yacht Club, has been an integral part of the Swiss watchmaker’s yachting portfolio since 2002. That year, the event welcomed a then record 43 boats. Today, it regularly attracts over 100 entrants, with 2014’s field of 122 being the mark to beat. And, with 149 yachts already registered, a record entry is in prospect if all these cross the start line.
