As part of the sponsorship agreement between the Mirpuri Foundation and the Sailing Academy of Cascais, all boats of the Optimist class are now displaying the Foundation image, carrying an important alert message to sensitize the young sailors to marine conservation issues, as each boat represents a marine species in danger of extinction. The Mirpuri Foundation also offered ten brand new Optimist boats to the sailing academy, and to honor this moment Paulo Mirpuri, President of the Foundation, visited the place accompanied by Miguel Horta e Costa, Commodore of the Naval Club of Cascais.
The Mirpuri Foundation believes sailing is a sport that brings young people and the sea closer together, thus making them more sensible towards the problems the oceans are facing and mobilising them to participate in their resolution.
Marine Conservation projects have been granted special attention and the Foundation has been working with Governments, Communities, Associations and Companies with the aim of raising awareness towards the great issues threatening our oceans, such as pollution, acidification, rising temperatures, coral bleaching, unsustainable fishing and extinction risk for many marine species.
