RMYC (The Royal Malta Yacht Club)
This page is dedicated to information related to the Royal Malta Yacht Club and it's history and the Committee that are responsible for the running of the Club and it's activities.
The history of the Royal Malta Yacht Club is an amazing one. It dates back to 1835 and, over the years, has changed it's name on a number of occasions.
The RMYC Committee is headed by the Commodore of the Royal Malta Yacht Club and is responsible for the day to day running of all events organised by the Club. The Committee consists of nine members and meet two to three times monthly.
Manoel Island was originally known as l'Isola del Vescovo or il-G|ira tal-Isqof in Maltese (literally translated as "the Bishop's Island"). In 1643 Jean Paul Lascaris, Grandmaster of the Knights of Malta, constructed a quarantine hospital on the island.
The Rolex Middle Sea Race is not just about offshore racing. It's about the love and respect every mariner has for the sea. Bicref and the R.M.Y.C.are pleased to offer a special prize to the yacht that reports the best whale and dolphin sighting.
