Alexia Barrier’s MOD70 Limosa (FRA) crossed the finish line of the 2023 Rolex Middle Sea Race at 13:10:42 on Monday to take Multihull Line Honours in an elapsed time of 2 days 2 hours 10 minutes 42 seconds.
The French boat is skippered by Alexia Barrier and Dee Caffari is the co-skipper. The other members of the crew are Elodie-Jane Mettraux, Marie Riou, Sara Heistreiter, Jonny Malbon, Jeff Mearing, Tom Dawson, and Robin Christol.
Sailing the 606nm course alone, since leaving Grand Harbour on Saturday, Limosa was on a race against the clock experiencing predominantly upwind conditions.
This is the second multihull line honours in a row for both Barrier, as skipper, and the boat that had managed such feat in 2022 under the name of Mana.
The multihull and outright race record remains 33 hours, 29 minutes, 28 seconds, set by the MOD70 Argo in 2021.
