MITDC hosted a ZOOM meeting on 8th September 2021, 11:00 Maldives time, (06:00 (GMT)); to provide information and Q&A on ‘Savaadheeththa Dhathuru” Maldives Yacht Rally 2022. Regular updates about the event had been posted on the official social media pages of MITDC and Savaadheeththa Dhathuru (www.maldivesyachtrally.com).
With the opening of registration for all interested sailors, many queries were received about the event. MITDC addressed those queries and more in this virtual information session, that was carried out in English to reach a wider audience.
Furthermore, with the increase in demand by locally registered safari boats to participate in the rally, MITDC has decided to open this event for such vessels as well. This will be an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the rich culture, heritage and peaceful living of the local islands of the Maldives.
The rally begins on February 2022 starting from the most northern atoll of the country, Haa Alif Atoll, taking a course of 3 weeks to reach Baa Atoll. It is designed to visit a total of 11 inhabited islands, 4 uninhabited islands and other interesting & adventurous activities.
During the yacht rally, the participants will experience the Maldivian rich history, highlighting memorials dedicated to our Hero Sultan Muhammed Thakurufaanu, and visiting 400 years old historic sites related to his endeavour.
