From South Africa to the United States, from Chile to New Zealand, the appeal of the Rolex Middle Sea Race is unquestionably broad, with over 30 countries represented in 2018.

A highly rated offshore classic, often mentioned in the same breath as the Rolex Fastnet, The Rolex Sydney - Hobart and Newport-Bermuda as a "must do" race. Co-founded in 1968 by the Royal Malta Yacht Club and the Royal Ocean Racing Club, the race has been running annually save for a break between 1984 and 1995.

A true challenge for skippers, the race is blessed with unsurpassed scenery taking competitors close to a number of islands, which form marks of the course.
