The Club successfully hosted the annual Boxing Day Fun Race in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund’s L-Istrina Fundraising Campaign.
A short race from Marsamxett to Fairway Buoy towards St. Julian’s and back took place under gloomy skies. Yet the vibe and cheer that could be found on the boats lightened up the mood. Winner of the Best Dressed Boat/ Christmas Cheer went to Comanche Raider III who could be heard from miles away as loud Christmas music cheered the fleet…..and possibly pedestrians in Sliema out for a walk along the sea front.
Not to be outdone were the kiddies at the Sailing School, who turned up with tinsel, baubles, Christmas hats and even a T-Rex costume – though fortunately this was ditched once the racing began!
The event raised €1635, part of which was collected through contributions by participants and part of which was donated by the Club.
