Galatasaray Sailing Team in Malta on training exchange

The Galatasaray Sailing team were in Malta on a training exchange with the Birzebbugia Sailing Club.

The group was composed of six young sailors, three of which are currently on the Turkish National sailing team. The Team, which was accompanied by Coach Adriana Karamanlieva, trained in the waters outside Marsamxett in all conditions from Tuesday to Friday whilst Saturday and Sunday they participated in the National Dinghy Championships. 

The utilisation of Malta as a training venue for European and other training teams is part of Yachting Malta’s policies. Malta is an excellent location for winter training for teams whose usual training areas are unaccessible in winter due to their climate.

This initiative was supported by the Ministry for Tourism, Yachting Malta and Malta Tourism Authority who hosted the team and coach for a presentation on the history of Malta, a guided walk around of Valletta followed by dinner.
