For a bit of fun, bringing you today's Rolex Middle Sea Race update from in the hot seat... on a boat!

BeWild the Swan42 continues to lead on IRC, Rambler 88 has moved up to second as they head into their last 200 miles with pace, and Sunrise Racing Team, the JPK 1180, the same design as last year's winner, and the boat I delivered to Malta have moved up to third.

Update from Marsamxett Harbour and the Rolex Middle Sea Finish Line

Check out my full recap of the second 24 hours of the race in the video below as I headed out for a sail off Malta myself... great to be back on the water and sailing for the first time since I was on board with Wizard last week.

Looking forward to releasing my interview and on board package of the Volvo 70 - and of course bringing you all of your live interviews dock-side as the boats begin to finish, hopefully within the next 24 hours... My fingers are crossed!

Thanks to SailCoach Making You Better for getting me out of the Yacht Club and onto the water where I am most happy this afternoon.

Delivery of Sunrise: Marseille to Malta

Two weeks ago today I was arriving in Malta on the JPK 1180 Sunrise, which is currently leading their division, and third on IRC overall.
