REGATTA 31 TA’ MARZU

Malta Rowing Association (Ghaqda Regatta Nazzjonali u Qdif Iehor) will once again be organising the traditional Regatta on Friday 31st March.

This event will see rowers from the seven traditional rowing clubs racing against each other in a friendly yet highly competitive manner.

This year, efforts have been made for the event to be more inclusive to members of the public who might otherwise find it difficult to experience the colourful atmosphere of the Regatta.

In particular, a special invitation is being extended to disabled persons to join the rowers in their special designated area where they do their last minute preparations before they race.

Holders of the Blue-Badge who wish to avail themselves of this invitation are kindly requested to contact the Registrar of the Association on regatta.malta@gmail.com by Monday 27th March so that the necessary arrangements can be made.

Due to logistical purposes, this invitation can only be extended to a limited number of persons, on a first-come first served basis.

The Commission for the Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD) feels satisfied that the Malta Rowing Association is giving the opportunity to persons with a disability to access the area and join the rowers.

This is going to provide the opportunity to persons with a disability a better accommodation to watch the event. We hope that other associations will follow such initiative and keep in mind in creating inclusive events and activities.

We augur that in the future we will also see persons with disabilities taking part in such sport.
