GasanMamo In­surance sails with ‘Co­manche Raider III’

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

GasanMamo In­surance re­newed its spon­sor­ship agree­ment with Co­manche Raider and will be spon­sor­ing the rac­ing yacht, Co­manche Raider III for the next three years. Guided by Mal­tese prom­i­nent sailor, Ra­mon Sant Hill, Co­manche Raider III was bought from its pre­vi­ous owner in Novem­ber of 2017 and since then has been un­der­go­ing a ma­jor over­haul.

“We have ex­tended our agree­ment with Co­manche Raider and de­lighted that we will be sail­ing with the new rac­ing yacht in this year’s up­com­ing events. As GasanMamo we are ex­cited to sup­port the Mal­tese boat and crew in the next sail­ing events, namely the Bay re­gatta which will be on 1 and 2 Septem­ber and in Oc­to­ber, the 50th an­niver­sary of the Rolex Mid­dle Sea Race. We have been ad­mir­ing the hard work, ded­i­ca­tion and col­lec­tive team ef­fort shown by the crew since 2001. We have fol­lowed the im­pos­ing progress shown by the crew of Co­manche Raider II and we are now thrilled to ex­tend our sup­port to the new Co­manche Raider III,” said Mark Mamo, gen­eral man­ager at GasanMamo In­surance.

Co­manche Raider III is a Bruce Farr De­sign 14-me­tre rac­ing sail­ing boat (Farr 45). The boat was con­structed in Mary­land USA, by Car­rol Marine, in 1997. Twenty iden­ti­cal Farr 45s were con­structed over a pe­riod of a few years and to date all 20 are still rac­ing and quite in­ter­est­ingly all 20 still sail with their orig­i­nal car­bon masts which proves the qual­ity of these boats.

“Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Co­manche Raider III in Camil­leri Marine Ra­gusa Re­gatta, the crew is thrilled with the per­for­mance of the boat and we have high hopes for the up­com­ing events,” said Jonas Dia­mantino and Hill.

For the 2018 Mid­dle Sea Race the team will be led by Dia­mantino, Melle Bo­ersma (Hol­land) and Hill who will be mak­ing their 14th at­tempt to­gether to win this most pres­ti­gious race. The to­tal crew com­ple­ment for this race will be 10.
