Malta Hosts EUROSAF

Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 8:51

In the first weekend of each December the Race Officials of EUROSAF member countries meet to allocate the vacant positions for the next year’s regattas. Malta has been chosen to stage the 2010 meeting, being held on the 4th and 5th December, at the Fortina Spa Resort Hotel in Sliema.

In such meetings EUROSAF runs a facilitation program for national and international officials to gain further international experience while at the same time bringing the event organisers into contact with officials from across Europe. EUROSAF has the ultimate objective of being an organisation with all European National Sailing Authorities as full members. Currently there are 39 member countries from a maximum of 46.   The Malta meeting, hosted by the Malta Sailing Federation, is being attended by 33 national federations.

The first Malta meeting of the EUROSAF Race Officials’ Committee and the Education Working Party is panned for Friday afternoon with the main workload being tackled in a full day session on Saturday.  This is being held at the clubhouse of the Royal Malta Yacht Club at Ta’ Xbiex.

A number of sightseeing excursions and other social gatherings, including a walking tour of Mdina hosted by the Malta Tourist Authority, are planned for the attending officials and their partners.

Dott. Marco Predieri, the Italian President of EUROSAF, will be amongst the executive officials attending the Malta meeting.
