Lovely crew dinner with the ever fabulous support team in the heart of old Valetta. Weather this morning looks promising for a reaching start in the Grand Harbour under the cliffs. All looks very tight for 120 racing yachts. Looking forward to a safe and fast rounding of Sicily.
Bags are being packed, boarding passes are being printed, and journeys started to get the crew and support team to Malta in time for this weekend’s Rolex Middle Sea Race. The race is Malta to Malta, which makes it very easy for the navigator, and saves the support team the logistical challenge of moving.
For the last 8000 years, Malta has had to deal with the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, Order of St. John, French and British. It will not have prepared them for the Triple Lindy circus.
