The presentation detailed the centuries-old maritime and cultural links that have united the two nations, underscoring the significance of the new partnership.

The Reciprocal Agreement was signed by Royal Malta Yacht Club Commodore Mr David Cremona, and Mr Mark Napier, Vice Commodore and Mr Alberto Franceschi Candeo, on behalf of the Real Liga Naval Española.

The signing ceremony was attended by H.E. Ambassador of Spain Mr Jose Maria Muriel, H.E. Ambassador of the Republic of Malta to Hungary Mr. Roberto Buontempo, Mrs. Claudia Carraro d’Amore,  Brigadier Clinton J O’Neill Commander Armed Forces of Malta and Mr Max Zammit, Ta’Xbiex Mayor.

The reciprocal agreement will allow members from each Club to enjoy the facilities and resources of the other, promoting cultural exchange and shared sailing experiences.

“This agreement marks a new chapter in the enduring relationship between Malta and Spain, celebrating our shared maritime heritage. We look forward to future collaborations” – David Cremona, Commodore.
