The Euromed 2010 starts today the 17th December and will come to an end on the 21st December. The popularity of this event increases every year and this year will be a record year with 92 Optimist sailors and 25 young Laser sailors registered. Competitors hail from far afield - namely Russia (who always bring over a large fleet), Denmark, Great Britain, Israel, Italy, Sicily and ofcourse our very own local girls and boys from Malta.

The event will take place from The Tunny Net in Mellieha Bay. Mellieha Bay being the perfect venue for an international competition within a very large open bay which gives perfect but challenging sailing conditions whatever the wind direction.

Having had a very balmy Autumn and probably the warmest November and first half of December on record, the weather has suddenly turned very cold with very chilly Northerly winds over the past few days making temperatures suddenly drop. No doubt the North wind has brought with it the big chill that mainland Europe has been having over the past few weeks. In spite of the drop in temperature the sea temperature still remains a warm 19C and the sun makes an appearance for most of the day - some scattered showers may be expected (but we DO need that precious rain!).

Good luck to all competing!
