Rolex Middle Sea Race - Tactically challenging developments loom

With the 33rd Rolex Middle Sea Race now underway, a tactically challenging and meteorologically intriguing race is developing. Thirty hours into the contest, all 83 yachts are still racing with the bulk of the fleet negotiating the infamous Strait of Messina. Leading the fleet, and midway between the Strait and Stromboli, are the 30.48m/100-ft Esimit Europa 2 (SLO), and two 21.94m/72-ft Mini Maxis Rán 2 (GBR) and Stig (ITA). Currently sailing at a meager two knots, the three are separated by less than one mile.
