It was the third time Optimum 3 – SUPERFAST, following participations in 2003 and 2004, took part in what is regarded as the largest and most challenging race in the Mediterranean, enjoying international media coverage and a record number of participants which this year numbered 73 vessels from a total of 18 countries. "This year we came against the toughest competition ever, we fought tirelessly and attained in addition to the first place, the respect of our competitors who congratulated us one-by-one on the finish line – it was very rewarding and moving at the same time" said the skippers apparently impressed.

The return sailing from Malta to Piraeus marks the end of competitive sailing for the Optimum 3 – SUPERFAST vessel for 2006, in what was another successful year in Greece and abroad.
