Expressing that the Black Sea will be colored with sails and canoes, Mayor of Ordu Metropolitan Municipality. Mehmet Hilmi Guler, Turkey "even though it is surrounded by sea on three sides we could not give the necessary weight to sea sports. We have half the sea of our land, but we do not have boats in our sea. As sportive activities, we only go in and out of the sea. Apart from this, we do not have any other activities. From now on, we will focus on these issues intensely. New Barbarossa will grow under the shadow of these sports and we will bring new athletes to the Turkish and world seas. We need to have full command of the seas. Our seas are waiting for us. When it was decided to build it at Ordu-Giresun Airport, especially the edges of the field were left blank. One of these empty spaces is now a track we will use for canoeing and sailing. We do not only have seas, but also canoe in our highlands. I hope the Black Sea will be a colorful sea with sails and canoes, ”he said.
