On the fine summer morning of Friday, June 28, a fleet of 29 boats left Tigne Point, Malta, headed for Marina di Ragusa, Sicily for the 2013 edition of the classic Citadel Ragusa Regatta.
Sponsored by Citadel Insurance plc and organised by the Royal Malta Yacht Club, the Citadel Ragusa Regatta has established itself as one of the highlights on Malta’s sailing calendar. Citadel is proud to sponsor this regatta, in line with the Company’s philosophy to support sporting events.
Once out on the open seas, the skippers and their crew were hoping for wind in their sails, so as to make the race a keen affair, with some close-sailing action set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea. On arrival in Ragusa, boats will participate in a series of inshore races on Saturday and Sunday, competing for the Trofeo Achille Boroli Challenge and the Rotta del Ciliegino organised by the Circoli Velici Iblei.
Citadel has recently revamped its yacht insurance policy to better cater for the requirements of boat owners. The comprehensive yacht insurance policy now includes some innovative new free add-ons namely special excess conditions for loyal customers, mooring fees cover, sighting costs following grounding, trip cancellation cover, crew replacement cover together with home and re-joining of boat cover (conditions apply). Regulated by the MFSA, Citadel offers a wide range of insurance solutions for home, motor, marine, life, business and travel insurance.
Citadel Insurance plc wishes good luck and pleasant sailing to all participants. To show their support, a number of Citadel Insurance plc staff will also be travelling to Ragusa for the weekend.
