“The Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy aims to be one of the main sailing events in the world,” says Paulo Mirpuri, President of the Mirpuri Foundation. “Marine conservation is a crucial cornerstone of our activities at the Foundation and inspires The Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy. We believe in the power of sport to bring people together and raise awareness of our planet’s challenges.”
The regatta will overlap with The Ocean Race Europe. When the fleet of IMOCA 60s and VO65s arrives in Cascais for the first stop of their summer adventure. A coastal race will contribute to the fleets’ overall race scores. One of those VO65s is the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Team.
