The Royal Malta Yacht Club is well into its preparations for the 37th edition of the event. The entries being received for the 608-nautical-mile race represent a good mix of familiar names and new ones signing up for first time. What is truly unique for a race of this length is that it starts and finishes in the same place, Valletta’s historic Grand Harbor. Valletta offers visitors a perfect mix of fascinating history and vibrant fun. Valletta, built by the proud Knights of St. John, is one of the UNESCO sights and the European Capital of Culture for 2018. It was in fact one of the earliest sites that got listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its old-world splendor and magnificent Baroque architectures. Valletta’s Grand Harbor is probably the island's greatest geographic asset, and a cardinal determinant of Malta's history.
