Day 1 report – 2023 EurILCA Europa Cup MLT

2264 0

The penultimate event of the 2023 EurILCA Europa Cup Trophy started yesterday in Mellieha Bay, Malta, hosted by Malta Young Sailors Club.

The first day of competition was marked by light breeze and a residual swell from NE, making the sailing conditions very challenging for both the sailors and the organising authorities. Nevertheless, the Race Committee successfully conducted three races across all three fleets.

Regrettably, adverse weather conditions have led to the cancellation of today’s racing. The organizing authority is diligently working to optimize opportunities for additional races in the upcoming days. The event is scheduled to continue until Tuesday, the 19th.
