For the second consecutive year, Marsa won the Victory Day regatta, claiming the two shields winning two races in the B category and another three in the open.

Vittoriosa placed second and Senglea third in the B category while Senglea placed second and Cospicua third in the open.

The races, in Grand Harbour, were watched by several hundred people on both sides of the harbour.

Before the races started, Archbishop Charles Scicluna blessed the boats and oarsmen before drawing the lots to decide the lanes the boats were to follow.
