The 2013 MMBA IOM Malta Open National Championships, sponsored by Thomas C Smith Ltd. and Bank Of Valletta, attracted a record number of entries from all over Europe. The huge success of this years event, has given the Organising Committee the imputus to continue. The event was held at the Mellieha Bay Hotel affording luxury and convenience for all sailors, be they from abroad or from Malta. Most skippers stayed at the hotel for the whole event, a large contingent of Maltese skippers also made the hotel their base for the duraction of the competition.
The location was superb with the hotel having a large private waterfront permitting the organisers to hold courses in different wind conditions and directions right on the doorstep of the hotel.
Due to the fantastic response to the event by all competing skippers, the 2014 Malta Open will be limited so that we keep the close friendly atmosphere that was experienced in the 2013 event. Invitations to participate in the 2014 Malta Open will be sent initially to the 2013 entrants.
A very big thank you to all participents in this years 2013 Open which was won by John Tushingham.
Thank you all for coming and making this event a success.
Special thanks go to all of the volunteers who helped with the organisation and race officiating
