Records were broken at the 42nd edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
Organised by the Royal Malta Yacht Club (RMYC) and partnered by Rolex since 2002, the 606-nautical mile race is renowned for its beautiful racecourse and challenging conditions. Setting a time of 33 hours, 29 minutes and 28 seconds, Jason Carroll’s United States trimaran Argo set a new outright race record.
Comanche, the 100-ft (30.48m) Maxi, overcame determined rivals to both claim monohull line honours and set a new monohull race record of 40 hours, 17 minutes and 50 seconds. Comanche would also be crowned overall race winner on corrected time, completing the triple crown.
