South African entry Hi Fidelity has been confirmed as overall winner of the 2012 Rolex Middle Sea Race.
Arriving at 04:18.15 CEST this morning, Eddie De Villiers’ Welbourne 46, established a corrected time benchmark that has proved impossible for the remainder of the fleet to beat. Hi Fidelity arrived in Marsamxett Harbour in dramatic style under a punishing thunderstorm, strong gusts and torrential rain, conditions atypical of those witnessed earlier during the 606-nm race.
