Euromed Championships 2013


The Euromed is upon us once again, and as each year goes by this international event becomes more and more popular. This year the start line should be between 130 and 140 young sailors from 10 countries participating. 

The event started off 14 years ago and is focussed around young Optimist sailors and slightly older Laser sailors. It is held in Mellieha Bay bringing our lovely bay back to life and taking me, personally, back quite a few years to our dinghy racing days. A time when local fleets were very large with a great assortment of classes and national championship numbers hovering around the 100 mark. Fun days!

This year racing is taking place from the sandy beach at Maxim'a Lido with accommodation HQ being at the Seabank Resort as usual.

You can visit the local Malta Young Sailor's Club website (an excellent website - well worth a visit) on this LINK to get more info on the event and to just have a general browse.

Teams should start arriving towards the end of the coming week and I will keep this blog up to date with a pictorial view of what is happening and an update of the leader board.
