In what was a major challenge for all rowers as strong winds made for turbulent seas, a truly extraordinary moment came when Birgu and Bormla both won the Victory Day National Regatta as a result of having the same amount of points in the Open Category. This would mean that the Shield will be split between both clubs, six months a piece.

The raw, emotional video shows Birgu Regatta Club fanatics in a moment of pure happiness as rowers Clayton ‘Is-Sigra’ and Clyde ‘Il-Fiffi’ secure the first place spot.

Are you a fan of the Regatta?

In what is considered to be one of Malta’s largest village feasts,  patrons of the Societa’ Filarmonica Maria Mater Gratiae Zabbar A.D. 1883, otherwise known as ‘Tal-Baqra’ as well as those representing Għaqda Madonna tal-Grazzja Banda San Mikiel Żabbar AD 1883, known as ‘Tal-Bajda’, adorned the streets of the southern Maltese village with tapestries, flags, statues and bright green and blue shirts.

Hundreds of feast-goers took to social media to share their festa moments, showing thousands of revellers hit the streets of Zabbar in their colour of choice. DJs, musicians, logistics operators and bar staff were operating at full speed to cater to the influx of visitors the village experiences this time of year and, safe to say, it was quite a success.
