The Bormla Regatta Club has something to celebrate!
Sponsored by AUM, the men’s team excelled in the Freedom Day Regatta, winning both Category B (adults) and Category A (youth) of the competition, which is held annually in Valletta’s Grand Harbour.
The Blues, as the Bormla team is known, have over the years come to dominate both the Freedom Day Regatta as well as the Victory Day Regatta.
Freedom Day (March 31) marks the withdrawal of British troops from Malta in 1979, while Victory Day (September 8) commemorates the Knights’ 1565 military triumph over the Ottomans following the Great Siege. Both are national holidays during which festivities and sports events take place.
AUM is proud to support the Bormla/Cospicua community’s various sports endeavors, and wishes the Regatta Club – in particular – continued success!
