Important Note


Places at the 2016 Malta IOM Open are restricted since this event has become very popular during the past 3 years. We have to limit the number of skippers for safety reasons but this also means that you, the skipper, get more sailing time as we do not have more than 3 fleets.


Invitations will be offered mainly to 2015 entrants first, any remaining places will be offered to skippers on the waiting list. To get your name on the waiting list, please send an e-mail to mmba-2012@hotmailcom
