Since its launch in 2007, the RC44 Championship Tour has established itself as a key series to compete on in the international yacht racing circuit.
The defining spirit of the Tour brings together the worlds of sailing and business, allowing amateur owner drivers to race, high performance one-design yachts, with some of the world’s elite sailors, competing at some of the most beautiful and diverse sailing venues around the world.
Although one of most competitive classes on the international circuit, the RC44 class is also one of the most friendly and welcoming.
The first edition of the RC44 Valletta Cup was held in March 2015 and saw some of the most spectacular racing in the Grand Harbour and off our shores. Nothing less to be expected when crews included Olympic Medallists, World Champions and America's Cup sailors the likes of Cameron Appleton, Dean Barker, Iain Percy, Vasco Vascotto, Ray Davies and Paul Goodison racing with some of the world's business leaders.
The RC44 Valletta Cup provided a perfect forum for local sailors and business people to mingle and network at the various VIP and Apres Sail events that were hosted.
The RC44 Valletta Cup will return to our waters between the 23rd and 27th November 2016.
