Jonas Diamantino’s ILC 40, Comanche Raider II, finished at 08:36:31, this morning to become the second Maltese boat to finish the Rolex Middle Sea Race after a close encounter with Artie.
Lee Satariano & Christian Ripard’s J/122, Artie finished at 08:44:55 just 26 minutes and 19 seconds late to take the overall lead.
“Obviously we are disappointed that we came so close to a memorable victory but we really pushed the boat to the limit, especially last night, in wind speeds gusting upto 30 knots,” explained Lee Satariano, shortly after the finish. “I could not have asked more of the crew and I can not think of any way we could have improved our performance.”
