Bank of Valletta is once again supporting the International One Metre (IOM) national championship organized by the Malta Model Boats Association.

The popular event is being held between the 30th March and 2nd April 2017 at the Mellieha Bay Hotel. Over 40 skippers from 7 different countries will test their sailing skills on highly sophisticated boats that are built to rigid specifications as dictated by the IOM.

Numerous races over a set course will be held over the 3 days with the highest ranked skipper declared the winner of the championship. The highest ranked Maltese skipper will be declared the national champion.

The MMBA would like to invite the public to attend to watch the beautiful spectacle offered by the colourful boats that travel and surprisingly high speeds.

Bank of Valletta is a major supporter of sporting initiatives in Malta and, along with Thomas Cook has been a long-term supporter of this competition.
