The International One Metre and the Malta National Championship are under way at the Mellieha Bay Hotel between the 30th March and the 2nd April 2017.

Supported by Bank of Valletta and the Thomas Smith Group, 41 racers from 7 different countries including Malta, are sailing for the International One Metre Championship – a series of races held over the four days. The top placed Maltese sailor within the competition will be declared the Malta national champion.

With Mellieha in the backdrop, the sailors are making the most of the beautiful Mediterranean weather which is accompanied by a nice breeze that gives a more challenging environment to all participants.

The boat specifications for these races are very rigid, as dictated by the IOM, with the sailors’ skills being the main determining factor in the races.

The Malta Model Boat Association is inviting sailing enthusiasts and the general public to go and watch this sporting event.
