21 – 28 October 2023

Location: Valetta (Malta, Mediterranean Sea)


Shaped to be a challenge similar to her illustrious sisters the Rolex Fastnet, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht and the Newport Bermuda Races, this 607-mile course has more than lived up to the expectations of her creators and left us with many stories of great seamanship, unwavering courage and, perhaps above all, passion.

Racetype: Long Distance Race

Host Club: Royal Malta Yacht Club







The Royal Malta Yacht Club (RMYC) is pleased to confirm that the Notice of Race for 44th Rolex Middle Sea Race is available online and yachts may already register their participation. Last year’s race attracted 118 yachts, another exceptional achievement for a race that always draws an impressively international fleet. The RMYC is looking to attract another varied participation and to challenge the record number of entries, 130, set in 2018. The 2023 race is scheduled to start on Saturday, 21 October from Grand Harbour, Malta.

Always seeking to build on the previous year, the RMYC is excited to announce it is employing a new registration system, which forms part of an updated race management backend suite geared to improving the experience of owners, crew, fans, media and the race team itself.

The system is based on the Nautical Cloud solution, developed by a group of passionate sailors intent on modernising the entire race office and competitor journey. The system enables sailors to enter races, manage crew and even find them, process payments and administer certification checklists with a seamless user experience. Nautical Cloud has been proven to transform the race experience and administration of several reputable clubs and events including the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) and the Junior offshore Group (JOG). Crews entering this year’s Rolex Fastnet Race will already be familiar with the process.
