The rough seas along the Sliema coast at the end of the week meant that the World Championships Voomquest Enemed UIM V2 were thwarted, with organisers amending the sequence of events.
The circuits planned for the outer reaches of the Grand Harbour had to be cancelled, meaning that no points were issued to the champions of this year.
Despite this, a series of match races were organised in the Grand Harbour, which thanks to the efforts of Transport Malta was closed for traffic.
On Saturday, the first three places were taken up by Team Interceptor Remax (GBR), driven by Sam Howes and Michael Xuereb.
Championship winners for the previous two years Team El Diablo (MLT) , driven by Clive Butler and Sammy Grima came in second place whilst newcomer Team Waist Not, (MLT) piloted by Jesmond Aquilina and Rhys Grima finished in third place.
Interestingly, third place Rhys Grima is following in his father Sammy Grima’s footsteps on the Voomquest podium.
Team Cutting Edge, driven by Steve Bezzina and Michael Abela (MLT) and Team Marine Diffusion (FRA) driven by Domenique and Jean Lic Martini finished in fourth and fifth respectively.
In the 3D class, Team CRB, Gasebeton and Sabbie di Parma were the first three finishers in what was a thrilling yet straightforward race.
On Sunday afternoon, Team Interceptor Remax continued on their winning streak taking first place once again, one point behind them were Team El Diablo whilst Team Cutting Edge clinched third place, ahead of Teams Marine Diffusion and Waste Not.
Following the V2 action it was the turn of the 3D Class was a more closely fought one, the fifth and eighth race being so close that footage analysis was required to determine the winners. Winning the eighth race meant that Blu Banca took the honours for the day, followed by CRB and Sabbie di Parma. Teams Gasbeton and De Mitri finished in fourth and fifth place.
