Adventures Ocean Racing Yacht

40th Edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race wraps up in Malta!

From the media centre in the Royal Malta Yacht Club, I can hear the party starting to kick up a notch, as sailors, race officials and family start to relax into the conclusion of the 40th Edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Over the past few days I have managed to wrap all of the stories that we looked into at the start of the race, and in the case of the first all-female team, a story that I looked into at the conclusion of the Rolex Fastnet Race.

Richard Schultheis completes first ocean race

I got the chance to wrap up with Richard Schultheis after his first offshore race in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, not only as a sailor but as a skipper at the age of 14!!! Not only did they experience every weather condition, they also assisted Blackwater and were part of the protest for redress. #inspired

First all-female team complete Rolex Middle Sea Race

What a way to wrap up my first Rolex Middle Sea Race; talking with the first all-female team to complete the Rolex Middle Sea Race, the Jarhead Young Sailors Foundation team from JAN. Absolutely amazing to see not only sailor girls on board given the opportunity to race, but also those under the age of 18! Amazing experience!
