New Directors to the Board
Whilst David has been an active member of the Royal Malta Yacht Club for twenty years, he has innumerable amount of races to his name including the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
2021 sees him in his second term in office, having served in the role of Rear Commodore House in 2020. David has decades of experience in a corporate environment having occupied senior management roles in various industries.
David currently works as a property negotiator for one of Malta’s leading real estate agencies.
Mark is a keen yachtsman. He has participated in most local races and has seven Rolex Middle Sea Races under his belt.
Mark has been elected to the Royal Malta Yacht Club Committee on several occasions since then serving as Treasurer and Secretary. Mark chaired a COVID-19 task force during last years’ RMSR which was crucial in making the race happen.
Mark’s background is in logistics and is currently a Senior Manager at Malta Freeport Corporation and has worked in the Ports of Riga, Latvia and Brindisi in Southern Italy.
Georges Bonello Dupuis
Georges was first elected to the Royal Malta Yacht Club’s committee in 1997.
He subsequently was elected Commodore, a post he held for twelve years until February 2012. A driver of change, he put his energies into consolidating the Club’s position as an internationally recognised establishment.
The securing of Rolex as title sponsor of the Middle Sea Race placed the Club into a position of significance on the international yachting scene. Georges spearheaded the building of the current Clubhouse in Ta’ Xbiex.
