Arzu Cekirge Paksoy; “We are very happy that the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup, which we have been holding for six years, attracts more attention and reaches more women every year. While we aim to increase the interest of women in sailing in our country with the works we carry out, we support the NGOs determined every year with our social responsibility approach that reflects women's sensitivity. In this context, we will donate some of our income to the SocialBen Foundation this year. He said, “We will continue to spread goodness on this path we set out with the slogan 'We are sailing for goodness'”.
Diana Misim, Member of the Organizing Committee of the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup, said, “I am very happy that we were able to bring the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup to life without losing any of its enthusiasm, despite the pandemic period. We touched the lives of countless women on this path we set out to make women love the sport of sailing. With our cup, we have brought together more than 40 female sailors in more than 500 different women's teams with sailing, and ensured that our participants had an exciting experience. We are also happy to create another category for University sailing teams this year and to support our future young girls by encouraging them in this field. I hope that this organization, which we started with dedication and faith, will reach more female sailors in the coming years.” said.
Serap Gökçebay, member of the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup Organizing Committee, expressed her happiness to be a member of the Mermaid Sailing Cup Organizing Committee and said, “The fact that only a small minority of licensed athletes registered in the Sailing Federation are women is an indication that female sailors should be supported. We set out 6 years ago to break this cycle, and we are walking step by step towards our goal with increasing interest every year. While we aim to pave the way for more female sailors through the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup, we continue to create social benefits with the donations we make to foundations.” said.
