End-of-Year Buffet Lunch
Sunday 9th December 2018
We thank all members who attended the End-of-Year Lunch at the Corinthia Palace Hotel San Anton on Sunday 9th December 2018. Over 80 members attended for the Lunch and we are very happy with the ever increasing number of support we get from you for such events.
During the Lunch, our Commodore Wilfred Sultana handed over the Commodore's Award to Patrick & Nadine Genovese as recognition to the support they both gave and continue to give to the Club. Our sincere congratulations to Patrick & Nadine Genovese.
Also during the same Lunch we gave away a Helly Hansen Classic Duffel bag by picking a name "from a hat" from the members present. The lucky winner was Ms Karolina Orn.
The Helly Hansen bag was donated to the Club by Camilleri Marine of Ta’ Xbiex Seafront Gzira
Summer 2018 Cruise to Tropea
A group of members this summer sailed all the way to Tropea (Calabria) visiting also ports on the east coast of Sicily and the southern tip of the Italian mainland. They took some stunning pictures on the way which we have put together in a Photo Album. All photos were taken by Ann and Pierre Aquilina

Cruise to Scoglitti – 29th June to 3rd July 2018
Sette Giugno Pozzallo Cruise 2018
Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th June 2018
A total of 23 boats took part in this year’s Continental Sette Giugno Pozzallo Cruise which took place between Wednesday 6th and Sunday 10th June 2018. A colour booklet highlighting the event and including a detailed programme of activities, was published and distributed to all members who took part in the Cruise. You can view a copy of this booklet by clicking here. This pamphlet was sponsored by a number of Official Partners referred to on pages 5 and 6.
Notwithstanding the challenging weather conditions, it was a very enjoyable stay in Pozzallo for the 85 members and their crew, throughout the 5-day event. The departure from Malta had to be anticipated by 24 hours because of forecasted high winds on Thursday 7th June and the crossing to Pozzallo took place on Wednesday 6th June instead. The crossing was uneventful albeit a rather uncomfortable one because of lumpy seas.
The shore events included an excellent dinner at Sea Sound Restaurant in Pozzallo, a coach trip to Catania followed by a guided tour of the historical sights of the city and lunch at one of the typical restaurants of Catania. The skippers and crews also visited the newly restored Cabrera Tower of Pozzallo as special guests of the Mayor of Pozzallo.
On Saturday 9th June most of the boats took part in a friendly cruise along the Pozzallo coast organised by the Lega Navale Sezione Pozzallo and in the evening a farewell dinner was organised at the Al Porto Restaurant right next to the marina. Special guests on this occasion were the Mayor of Pozzallo, Dott. Roberto Ammatuna and Mrs. Ammatuna as well as Dott. Giuseppe Privitera, Councillor in the Comune di Pozzallo responsible for Tourism and Entertainment, Culture, Commerce, European Funds.
All boats returned back to Malta on Sunday 10th June in mild weather conditions that rounded off a relaxing and pleasant stay in the neighbouring island of Sicily.
The Malta Cruising Club Committee would like to thank all members who took part in this cruise, as well as those who missed the Cruise because of the change in the departure date.
Special thanks also goes to our title sponsors, Continental Tyres and their Malta representatives Standard Import Export Co Ltd, who, for the second consecutive year, sponsored this event and worked closely with the Club to facilitate the shore events.
We would also like to thank Lega Navale Sezione Pozzallo and especially its President, Dott. Ing. Luigi Tussellino for his support and hospitality. Special mention should also go to the two boats and their crews from the Gozo Cruise & Crews Club who this year decided to join us for this cruise.
We now look forward to next year’s cruise which will be the 7th Edition of the Sette Giugno Cruise and the 100th anniversary of this historic Maltese date!
