Alexia Barrier’s MOD70 Limosa (FRA) crossed the finish line of the 2023 Rolex Middle Sea Race at 13:10:42 CEST on Monday 23 October to take Multihull Line Honours in an elapsed time of 2 days 2 hours 10 minutes 42 seconds.
Limosa crew: Alexia Barrier (skipper), Dee Caffari (co-skipper), Elodie-Jane Mettraux, Marie Riou, Sara Heistreiter, Jonny Malbon, Jeff Mearing, Tom Dawson, 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 Alexia Barrier, as skipper, and the boat (named Mana in 2022).
The multihull and outright race record remains 33 hours, 29 minutes, 28 seconds, set by the MOD70 Argo in 2021.
