The 2023 EurILCA Europa Cup MLT concluded today in Mellieha Bay, Malta, hosted by Malta Young Sailors Club.

Following three races with light breezes on the initial day of competition, the subsequent two days presented severe weather conditions, preventing any further on-water activities.

It wasn’t until today, the fourth day, that suitable sailing conditions returned to Malta, permitting three additional races for each fleet.

After a total of six races, the winners in ILCA 4, ILCA 6, and ILCA 7 are as follows:
