ARQ Group to spon­sor the RC44 Val­letta Cup

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

ARQ Group, for the sec­ond year run­ning, will be both sup­port­ing part­ners and of­fi­cial spon­sors of the pres­ti­gious RC44 Val­letta Cup. This year’s event started in Ber­muda in March, and the fi­nal race of the sea­son will take place be­tween 23 and 27 Novem­ber in the wa­ters of Malta’s cap­i­tal city. The clos­ing race will be set against one of sailing’s most spec­tac­u­lar back­drops and will be an ex­cit­ing end to what has been a mem­o­rable sea­son.

The defin­ing spirit of this world­fa­mous se­ries is that of com­bin­ing the worlds of busi­ness and sailing by giv­ing am­a­teur own­ers the op­por­tu­nity to pi­lot high-performance yachts in some of the world’s most beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tions, while putting their tal­ents against some of the ma­jor names in yacht­ing. This year’s event will cel­e­brate the 10th an­niver­sary of the RC44 se­ries and will welcome a host of both am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional sailors from all over the world to race be­neath the 500year-old for­ti­fi­ca­tions of Val­letta and the Three Cities. So far this year, the RC44 se­ries has raced from Ber­muda to So­togrande be­tween 2 and 6 March be­fore head­ing to Spain and Portsmouth and fi­nally Por­tu­gal be­tween 21 and 25 Septem­ber.

Chris­tian Far­ru­gia, direc­tor of ARQ Group spoke with an­tic­i­pa­tion about the up­com­ing event, stat­ing that: “ARQ Group is very proud to be spon­sor­ing the RC44 Val­letta Cup once again this year. This is a high-pro­file yacht­ing event which brings to­gether some of the best yachts­men in the world in a se­ries of com­pet­i­tive races that are breath-tak­ing to watch. The event will also show­case Malta and the unique bas­tions of its cap­i­tal city, Val­letta, to a global yacht­ing au­di­ence which in­cludes many who may not know much about the is­land and what it has to of­fer. ARQ Group is at the fore­front of the pro­mo­tion of Malta as a rep­utable mar­itime, avi­a­tion and fi­nan­cial ser­vices cen­tre and sup­ports any ini­tia­tive which throws such a pos­i­tive spot­light on the ju­ris­dic­tion.”
