‘’Mermaid National Women’s Sailing Cup’’ was organized in cooperation with the İstanbul Sailing Club on 6-7-8th September for the fourth consecutive year. ’’Mermaid National Women’s Sailing Cup’’ is created to increase the interest in sailing sport and to create awareness on gender equality. It promotes the ability of women in business life to create winning teams that will face the challenges ahead. Furthermore, ‘’Mermaid National Women’s Sailing Cup’’ generates a certain income through sponsorships and donates this to foundations which work for women(i.e. this year all the earnings of the event were donated to AÇEV (Mother-Child Development Foundation).
Dunapack Packaging Women’s Sailing Team in Turkey consists of 8 colleagues who prepared for the race with high motivation (due to bronze cup, acquired previous year) and regular trainings since almost a year. Our IRC 3 class team was able to outperform its’ competitors at the end of challenging 3-day competition and secured 1st position in the competition, bringing the gold cup home. Although, our team is participating for the second time this event and taking the first place, among the other experienced rivals, is a very pleasing achievement for us.
As Dunapack Packaging Family, we would like to thank our team for their efforts, achievement and representing us in the best competitive way in this beautiful social responsibility project. In years to come we expect the keep the golden trophy. “We Will.”
