Around 50 Offshore Sailing Boats including conventional and high-performance cruisers, are expected for the first edition of the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy, that will take place in Portugal, home country of the Mirpuri Foundation, next June 27th and 28th. The race will take place between Cascais and Sesimbra with route details to be announced soon. The Clube Naval de Cascais partners with the Mirpuri Foundation for this event.

The Award will be the Mirpuri Foundation Trophy, plus a prize money, with details to be announced soon.

“The Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy aims to be one of the leading sailing events of its type in the world going forward”, says Paulo Mirpuri, President of the Mirpuri Foundation, adding: “For 2020, the Mirpuri Foundation selected once again Marine Conservation as one of its main working areas. The Foundation is conscious of the undeniable importance in preserving ocean and marine ecosystems, creating awareness about the threats and respective consequences. This is what the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy is all about, raising awareness but also protecting the environment and nature.”

The Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy will be a plastic-free sustainable regatta, and a charitable event, with team registration fees in this first edition of the race being supported by the Mirpuri Foundation and donated to Marine Conservation programs.

The Mirpuri Foundation will once again innovate by promoting the first health controlled Race in the world, with a dedicated medical team ensuring all staff and sailors are in good health and free from the virus Covid-19, including the use of last generation tests that will give the result in less than 15 minutes.
