Flying the Maltese Flag

Two Edwardians will be flying the colours of our national flag in the sailing event 2021 Optimist European Championship. This will be held on the 20-27th June 2021 in Cadiz, Spain.

Ryder Croft (Yr 9X) and Thomas Zahra (Yr 9Y) will be joining other young sailors from the Birzebbugia Sailing Club.

The Optimist, also known as the ‘opti’, or ‘oppie’, is a small, single-handed sailing dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15. Contemporary boats are usually made of fibreglass, although wooden boats are still built.
