Igor Simcic’s Esimit Europa 2 crossed the finish line in Marsamxett Harbour in Malta just before 0100 CEST (00 hours, 54 minutes, 35 seconds) on Tuesday, 24 October, to claim the line honours win at the 2011 Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Esimit Europa 2 registered an elapsed time of 61 hours, 24 minutes and 35 seconds.


Dockside at the Royal Malta Yacht Club, owner and project manager Igor Simcic was presented with a Rolex Yacht-Master timepiece by Malcolm Lowell Jr. from Edwards’ Lowell, as well as the R.L.R. Line Honours Trophy by Royal Malta Yacht Club Commodore, Georges Bonello DuPuis.

In 2010, Esimit Europa2 was also the line honours winner, with an elapsed time of 54 hours, 52 minutes, 32 seconds.

As Esimit Europa 2 crossed the line in Malta, the nearest yacht, Rán (GBR), was approximately 90 nautical miles behind, and was expected at the finish in Malta Tuesday afternoon.

A total of 70 yachts started the 32nd Rolex Middle Sea Race on Saturday, 22 October; to date, one boat has retired, the Class 40 Pogo 1 (GER).

The course record set in 2007 by George David's 90-foot Rambler (USA) stands at 47 hours, 55 minutes, 3 seconds.
