RMYC Rear Commodore Arthur Podesta passes away
05 October 2015
It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Rear Commodore Marine Operations Arthur Podesta. Arthur was a long standing member of the Royal Malta Yacht Club committee having served for many years. He acted in many roles including that of Commodore. Arthur will long be remembered for his love of sailing and was a regular competitor in local and foreign regattas. His association with the Rolex Middle Sea Race goes back to the very start, when he was a crew member on Josian, winner of the inaugural race in 1968. Arthur was the only sailor to compete in all previous editions of this race. The Royal Malta Yacht Club extends its condolences to Arthur’s family in such a difficult time. Arthur's funeral will take place on Wednesday, 7th October at 14:00hrs at St. John of the Cross, Parish Church, Ta'Xbiex. Dear Arthur, may you rest in peace, you will be missed.
