The Oppie World's opening ceremony took place yesterday .
Jake Satariano is proudly flying the flag for Malta.
The ceremony opened with each team flag bearer going to their flag mast and hoisting their national flag. The teams had a parade and after the welcome address a couple of speeches were made. After that it was a good meal and an early night ready for the first day of racing the following day.
