Grand Harbour Marina have witnessed yet another fruitful events calendar for 2019 further reinforcing its popularity as a venue of choice for both local and foreign events. With a high focus on Super Yacht activity, the marina has implemented a tailored made Crew Program targeting Captains and crew choosing to winter berth in the marina.
“A large aspect of the customer satisfaction at Grand Harbour Marina is based on the interaction Captains and Crew have with one another during their stay at the marina. With this in mind, we wish to create experiences which inspire and excite our crew, achieving this by really listening to our clients and finding out what they wish to take out of their experience berthing in Malta.”
Apart from a weekly program providing complimentary yoga classes, football tournaments and midweek crew socials featuring live local artists, we also have monthly catered events such as brunch clubs, wine tastings and Friday Night Braai’s as well as general team building activities like courtesy crew bowling, golf days and volleyball tournaments.
Events are also linked with our Corporate Social Responsibilities. Just last November we had 2 major charity events taking place, one was a 5KM run around the Marina raising over 5000euros towards Hospice Malta promoting Cancer awareness and Mens Health. The other was a classic car event where crew where given the opportunity to pay a small donation and get driven around in some classic beauties raising money for Puttinu Cares.
With the addition of the marina’s second Seabin, Grand Harbour Marina continues to implement quarterly clean up campaigns bringing together marina staff, captains and crew, boat owners and the local community together to promote environmental awareness and sustainable working habits.
The Rolex Middle Sea Race, now in its 40th edition, continues to be the number one event on the sailing calendar, and GHM where proud to host the boat and crew of line honour winners SY Rambler. Great interest has also been given to an up and coming sport within the SB20 (Sport Boat Racing) division which has become increasingly popular with both local and foreign sailors. Grand Harbour Marina now join the fleet after acquiring its very own boat to take part in both National and International competitive regattas.
“We realize the need for crew based here for the Winter who wish to still be out on the water. We encourage crew to make use of the SB20 for team building purposes as well as getting involved in the national regattas which also gives them the opportunity to be part of the local sailing community”
Aydan Longmore, Captain of 66M MY OKTO comments:
“I was really impressed with the events overall, it’s a wonderful way to get to meet all other Captains in a relaxed atmosphere. The marina does a great job in keeping us constantly entertained through a variety of activities to suit everyone’s tastes.”
