Yachting Malta Awards Nominees – Arthur Podesta

Arthur Podesta

Arthur Podesta

Past Commodore Royal Malta Yacht Club, Skilled Yachtsman

Throughout his entire life, Arthur was very much involved in the yachting scene both locally and overseas. His association with the Rolex Middle Sea Race goes back to the very start, when he was present at the inception meeting for the race, and then a crew member on Josian, winner of the inaugural race in 1968.  Arthur was the only sailor to compete in all of the first thirty five editions of this race. He devoted many years of his life to the Royal Malta Yacht Club as an active member, committee member and even Commodore. Besides the Royal Malta Yacht Club, Arthur was always involved (as an organiser or as a participant) in major yachting events in Malta. He encouraged many beginners to take to the sport, particularly by giving them the opportunity to crew on his own boat, Elusive. He was renowned for his experience, skill and knowledge and remains an inspiration to all who knew him.

The Yachting Malta Awards are being supported by Mercedes-Benz, Simon Estates, Charles Grech and Transport Malta.
