The Anti-Fouling presentation that took place on Friday 5th April 2019 at the Waterfront Hotel in Gzira was very well attended. Thank you for all the members that turned up in spite of the unfavourable weather that evening.
The presentation was sponsored by International Paints and all those present learnt about some interesting products that will soon hit the market which will make the life of each boat owner much easier.

“Sette Giugno” Cruise
Falken Tyres, Official Global Tyre Partners of 21 leading football clubs across eight European countries, including Liverpool FC (England), Atletico Madrid (Spain), FC Schalke (Germany), Lazio (Italy) and other teams in France, Holland, Poland and Sweden, are the new Title Sponsors of the “Sette Giugno” Pozzallo Cruise for 2019.

This year the popular event is being held between Thursday 6th and Sunday 9th June.
The sponsorship was finalised during a visit to Malta last week by Fabrizio Manfredi, Sales Support Manager for Italy and Malta, of Falken Tyre Europe. Also present at the sponsorship agreement meeting was Johann J. Cuschieri, Director of Standard Limited, Malta agents for Falken Tyres.
Falken Tyres are continuing their brand strategy of widening their engagement in sports sponsorship and creating great opportunity to raise brand awareness.
