Incentive programme around the Rolex Middle Sea race in Malta
The top management team of an insurance company was flown to Malta for an exclusive two-day event set around the annual Rolex Middle Sea Race, which is considered to be one of the most prestigious sailing events in the world. The Race has been an ongoing tradition since 1968, and now attracts over 100 racing yachts with highly-acclaimed skippers from all over the world.
The program began the day before the Race, at the Royal Malta Yacht Club where guests were invited for a welcome reception amidst the bustling atmosphere of the yachts and sailors, anticipating the race. Following the reception they departed directly from the Yacht Club’s pontoon on 750hp powerboats to discover the island of Gozo with jeeps. An exclusive wine tasting and typical local lunch on the edge of a cliff complemented the day.
The following morning began with a breakfast meeting around the hotel pool and the highlight of the event: Champagne reception at an exclusive venue overlooking the historical and impressive Grand Harbour of Valletta to view the start of the race. After most of the yachts sailed out of the harbor, classical vintage limousines pulled up to the venue to take the guests to the centre of the island, where a farewell lunch was served in a privatised square in the medieval and fortified city of Mdina.
