2022 BENETEAU Cup : Off the Coast of Malta

More than 120 participants gathered in the port of Valletta in Malta, from 18 to 19 November, for a friendly meeting to indulge in the joys of sailing.

A fleet of 21 BENETEAU boats, comprising FIRST and Oceanis sailing yachts, lined up for the start of the race, setting sail for Comino Island in sunny weather, in a 15- to 25-knot southwesterly wind. 

During lunch at the anchorage site, the BENETEAU staff were there to motivate the troops before the second leg.
