Despite the continuing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are signs of the situation easing around the world. With cautious optimism, the Royal Malta Yacht Club (RMYC) is pleased to announce the Notice of Race for the 41st Rolex Middle Sea Race is now available online
Over the past few weeks, the RMYC has carefully monitored developments globally and, in particular, the advice and guidance from the World Health Organisation and the Maltese government concerning participation sports like yacht racing. The club’s intention to run the 2020 race remains subject to changes in circumstances both locally and internationally, and the evolution of guidelines between June and October. The current plan is to review the state of play in August, and the RMYC has reserved the right to amend the Notice of Race up until 31 August.
In the meantime, there has been a steady stream of yachts indicating their interest in participating. Some 29 entries have been received to date, with yachts representing Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Spain and the USA.
