Michele Galli’s B2, a TP52 from Italy, has been confirmed as the overall winner of the 34th Rolex Middle Sea Race. B2 is the first Italian yacht to claim the Rolex Middle Sea Race Trophy since 2005, emerging victorious from the largest and one of the most competitive fleets in the race’s 45-year history.
Expertly guided by tactician Francesco de Angelis, B2 completed the 606-nm course on Tuesday afternoon in a little over three days. She was the eighth boat to cross the finish line in Malta.
