A Brief Introduction to our Association
The Malta Model Boat Association was formed in 1994 to promote the sport of remote controlled yatch racing in Malta. In its formative years the club was successful to the extent of organising both National and International events culminating in the World Championships in 1999. As often happens, following such a large event, interest in the sport had wained for a period of a few years. However due to a few enthusiastic members the club has contined to promote the sport locally. Thanks must be given to Robert Deleonardo (ex-President) and Albert Micallef (ex-Treasurer) who have tirelessly continued to organise events and promote the sport during these lean years.
The club has now ressurected itself and the new committee and members are showing enthusiasm with regard to rebuilding itself back to its former status. We are pleased to announce that membership has risen over the last year and interest in the sport is on the increase.
Although we only have some 20 boats actively racing, the enthusiasm and competetive spirit combined with the Latin temperment makes for some very interesting sailing !
One of the principle aims of the club is to encourage the younger generation to join in the sport thereby ensuring the future of remote controlled sailing in Malta.
We also welcome visitors from abroad to come and join us at Ta 'Xbiex on a Sunday morning to meet our members and share in the enjoyment of the sport. So if you are planning a trip over to our lovely island, please contact us as we look forward to meeting you.
