At 606-nautical-miles it is a major test in anyone’s programme and once again, the 36th edition is attracting the usual mix of professional and Corinthian adventurers willing to pit their skills and reputations against one of the most technically demanding races in the calendar. The nature of the course and its location make predicting the weather and the winner a lottery, but when Rolex Middle Sea Race starts from Grand Harbour a raft of uncertainties will be answered.
Northern Child is superbly equipped for racing with a full inventory of race sails and is maintained to the very highest standard. This year Northern Child is offering an 11 day package including 2 training days before the race.
With individuals or a group on board, our objective is to give a safe and enjoyable experience to all crew members whilst racing round the beautiful islands and stunning blue water.
The two professional crew will train the crew to ensure that the racing is safe, fun and enable each crew member to make a valuable contribution to the team effort. Although prior race or sailing experience is preferred, it is not essential. The 2 training days represent a great opportunity for each crew member to get familiar with the yacht and the racing manoeuvres.
