After a spectacular night-time passage of the Stromboli volcano, the heated battle between Maserati Multi70 and Phaedo3 continues off the Aeolian Islands. The English craft has been leading the Rolex Middle Sea Race since the start, but currently the two trimarans are racing about 18 miles apart in a 10-knot SE off Salina and Filicudi. MaseratiMulti70 is making a speed of 21 knots (381 miles from Malta) while Phaedo3 is making 19.1 (363 miles from Malta). The weather conditions will remain stable as far as Palermo but just before San Vito Lo Capo, the wind will freshen and turn southerly so that the two MOD70s will be sailing increasing into the wind and will have to beat all the way to Malta.
