Unfortunately the god’s were not with us today, on the second day of racing, with a lack of wind and pouring rain for much of the day.
Although it was not possible to hold any racing for the Optimists, one race was held for the Lasers. Benji Borg, from Malta, has kept his 1st position while Italian Maurizio Barbera came in 2nd with Malta's Christoph Podesta in 3rd place.
It is on days like this that having the luxury of a fully functioning Sailing Centre is appreciated. The Adira Sailing Centre has, at last, equipped Malta with first class facilities designed specifically to cater for large events like the Euromed Championship. As the race headquarters it has the latest technology available for an efficient race office and a comfortable base for sailors and spectators alike.
Together with the excellent conditions the bay has to offer, makes this the perfect venue for local and international sailing events.
The Adira Sailing Centre belongs to a friend who has been sailing, windsurfing and yachting all his life. If you are looking for a new venue to hold an event, or you live in colder climes and have teams that need to practice in the winter contact the centre about it. Mellieha Bay is such a perfect and safe location for sailing and windsurfing. Perfect location for really interesting long distance practice and racing too. If you want to have a look at the website or contact him (his name is Paul Ellul) go onto this link www.adirasailingcentre.com.mt/
I am planning on doing a few profiles on some of the young sailors over the coming days - so keep your eyes open on this blog!
