Euromed 2014 - Some Pics from Day 2

Below are just a small selection of photos taken during one of the races held on the 2nd day of the Euromed. Wind was a light westerly with the start close to the mouth of Mellieha Bay and the windward mark a short distance below the Mellieha Bay Hotel.
Photos not brilliant as I was on shore and sailors a bit far off, but one gets a good idea of the course they had and wind conditions. 
Mellieha Bay is the ideal location to hold sailing events of any sort, whether for a Championship, training camps or just plain recreational sailing. The bay is large yet safe to sail in and the surrounding scenery complements the pristine clear waters of the Med around Malta and Gozo.

To view the results in each class have a look at the Euromed Results page on the MALTA YOUNG SAILORS website HERE

Euromed Championships 2014 - Day 1

The Euromed 2014 International Championships got off to a good start yesterday morning. A great turnout once again this year with sailing teams from all over Europe participating in this growing annual event. Competition is very high with World Class calibre young sailors racing and, no doubt,  definitely some future big names in sailing.
The Euromed is now in its 15th year and is organised by the Malta Young Sailors Club. The shore office and race committee are made of very dedicated volunteers, some of whom have many years of experience behind them being involved in various sailing events locally and abroad including the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
Below is an assortment of pre-race photos. More photos on the water to come together with provisional results.
