(October 20, 2014) – After 122 yachts began the 35th Rolex Middle Sea Race on October 18, a record turnout representing 24 countries, the pace along the 608 nautical mile race around Sicily has been anything but record setting. Conditions are expected to remain light tonight and most of Tuesday, but a significant change by Tuesday evening could provide as much as 30 knots from the northwest, giving the smaller yachts a fast downwind sleigh ride for the last 300 miles of the race.
