Malta Young Sailors - Good Start to the International Racing Season

Three members of the Malta Young Sailors Club recently took part in Optimist regattas held in Lago di Garda.
Craig Farrugia Vella was been in top form and came a very credible overall 2nd place in the Garda Country Cup.

Following this event was the 34th Garda Meeting with no less than 900 competitors from 30 countries. Quite a large fleet on the water to say the least. With competition of the highest calibre in Optimist racing,  the Maltese sailors sailed well in moderate to strong wind conditions. The final results achieved were Craig in 21st place and Victoria Schultheis in 35th place within the Gold Fleet whilst Matthew finished 3rd overall within the Silver Fleet.
Once again a big well done to these young ambassadors for Malta and wishing all those young sailors racing home and abroad the best of  luck for what lies ahead in 2016.

Lots of action rounding the buoys
