Arzu Çekirge Paksoy, Member of the Organization Committee of the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup, was organized to increase women's interest in sailing and to support women's sailing in our country; We are delighted to organize the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup, which we launched in 2016 for the first time with the slogan “We are sailing for good,” for 5 years. We attach great importance to the empowerment and existence of women in sports, as in all areas of life. With this perspective and awareness of social responsibility, we both introduce women to sailing and donate some of our income to NGOs working on women. Thus, the women participating in our Cup both compete gentlemanly and help us make a difference in the lives of other women. In order to touch the lives of more women and spread the goodness, we invite all institutions and women interested in sailing to participate in the Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup in the coming years ”.

Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup Organizing Committee Member Diana Misim said, “This year, our Cup took its place in the international calendar with the valuable contributions and initiatives of the Istanbul Sailing Club, and made a dream come true. In the coming years, we aim to enlarge our Cup with the participation of new national and international teams. Within the scope of the cup, we reached 25 female sailors with a total of 10 different sailing teams, including 2 corporate companies, 2 individual women's sailing teams, 39 non-governmental organizations and 450 university women's sailing teams. "70 percent of this number are women who first meet sailing."

Saying that such organizations are very important for the development of sailing in our country, Mermaid Women's Sailing Cup Organization Committee Member Serap Gökçebay said, “There are approximately 8 thousand licensed athletes registered in the Sailing Federation, but unfortunately even 5 percent of them are not women. "We set out XNUMX years ago to break this cycle and we see that we have achieved our goal with increasing interest every year."
