Sir Joe Bossano's Visit

May 25, 2021

“It’s a great pleasure, and with a sense of pride, that we are able to host this event. It’s a reflection of the fantastic work that has been done in the last 18 years by the organisers of the bigger event we used to have before, and it’s a good thing that you are able to travel here, and that Gibraltar is virtually Covid-free. That is something that has disrupted the lives of our citizens and throughout the world. It’s now, hopefully, the start of getting back to normality, so we see this as an important event for the international chess community, and an important event in the drive we have, to not let the effects of Covid change our lives permanently.
