Mirpuri Foundation believes that sailing is a sport that brings young people closer to the sea and thereby warns them to the problems of the oceans and mobilizes them to participate in their resolution. The Foundation developed several initiatives to benefit this sport and is very pleased to sponsor the Sailing School of the Naval Club of Cascais, to whom recognizes much of the merit of what has been done in Portugal in the sailing area.

Projects in the area of Marine Conservation have deserved special prominence and are particularly cherished by the current administration, who has been working to raise awareness of the serious problems of our oceans, such as pollution, acidification, rising temperatures, rapid destruction of corals, bad fishing practices and risk extinction of several marine species.
