After a long absence, Vikings will be hosting a ranking event on the 9th and 10th October 2021. The committee has been working on this event for several months and we look forward to hosting sailors from all the local clubs. A large fleet of dinghies is expected to participate together with the larger SB 20s and J92s. This event is also possible thanks to Peter Dimech from RMYC who has kindly accepted to be our race officer and Michael Mifsud, MSF president who has been of great help to obtain the numerous permits required.
See you all on the water!
This week our club was visited by Hon Dr Clifton Grima, Parliamentary Secretary for Youths, Sports and Voluntary Organisations during one of our #summeronthemove kids Sportmalta sessions. Also present for the visit was Mr Robert Portelli, Sportmalta head of programmes. They were given a tour of club premises by VSC Commodore Dr Sandra Agius Darmanin, PRO Miriam Vella and Committee member Michael Fenech.
Last week was a very busy one for Vikings. On Friday we hosted the AFM Maritime Squadron for a sailing activity as a thank you for allowing us to use their slipway while ours was being repaired. Our coaches were amazed at the speed at which the boats were rigged, launched and derigged. We really enjoyed having them.
