Yachting Malta announces its support towards the Malta Superyachts Industry Network and Mapfre Middlesea Euromed International Regatta

Yachting Malta announced its support towards the Malta Superyachts Industry Network and a  number of local sailing clubs through the Euromed International Regatta which is hosted annually in Malta and organised by the Malta Young Sailors Club.

This was recently announced during a press conference held at the Royal Malta Yacht Club in the presence of Hon. Minister Dr. Konrad Mizzi, Minister for Tourism and representatives of the Superyachts Industry Network and various sailing clubs.

Yachting Malta announced two support schemes, the first being that of a contribution that will go towards the training of local sailors who will be taking part in the Euromed International Regatta to be held in December. This regatta, hosted by the Malta Young Sailors Club, always welcomes a large fleet of over 200 participants, representing some 22 different countries.

“This agreement, signed with Yachting Malta,  will ensure that our sailors will be able to train on a more professional level.  With this investment we will ensure that continuous investment takes place so that future generations will benefit from more opportunities” explained Hon. Mizzi

Yachting Malta presented a sponsorship to the Malta Superyacht Industry Network through which this network of Maltese businesses within the superyachts industry will be participating in the Cannes Boat Show to be held between 10 and 15 September.  This support is aiming to increase and develop the industry network through participation in such international fairs which are well known events that attract world renowned boat builders, owners and crews.

“Today’s occasion is part of Yachting Malta’s efforts to provide growth and development opportunities for the various stakeholders in the industry. Whilst sailing is becoming a fast growing sport that is attracting some very promising sailors, the superyacht industry is a niche that Yachting Malta sees a lot of potential and is working closely with the stakeholders to identify growth prospects” – commented John Huber, Chairman, Yachting Malta.
