Rolex Middle Sea Race
21 Oct 14
After three complete days at sea only three boats competing in the 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race have passed the northwest tip of Sicily, roughly the halfway point of the race.
The events were open to male and female competitors with the host nation's Noel Robins, Jamie Funross and Graeme Martin taking the first Sonar gold and Heiko Kroger claiming the first 2.4mR gold.
Both events remained through Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 before the introduction of a two-person keelboat for Beijing 2008. The SKUD18 was the chosen equipment and the first gold medal went to America's Nick Scandone and Maureen McKinnon-Tucker.
All three events will be on show in Weymouth for the London 2012 Paralympic Sailing Competition.
