Maiden left Malta yesterday to begin her voyage to Kerala in India.
The pit stop in Malta was absolutely amazing and Maiden was hosted by the inspirational Jarhead Young Sailors www.jarheadyoungsailorsmalta.org and Olwyn Foundation. The crew had a few well deserved days off and Maiden had some issues sorted out. There was a steady stream of visitors to see the boat and the crew which and we were made to feel extremely welcome.
The crew were sad to leave but of course must keep moving on as they continue on their two year world tour to raise funds and awareness for girls’ education. Maiden’s send off was as enjoyable as her stay in Malta with Her Excellency the President of the Republic of Malta, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca making an inspirational speech to wish Maiden well.
Young sailors formed a flotilla of yachts to escort Maiden out of Grand Harbour and it was farewell until 2020.
We owe a debt of gratitude to all of those who assisted us especially the Grand Harbour Marina.
Maiden will be hosted in India by the wonderful Faizal and Shabana Foundation https://www.faizalshabana.org/
