More specifically, within the framework of LALIZAS' Corporate Social Responsibility program, aiming at the promotion of sports and particularly water sports, the company officially sponsors the Yiannis Latsis - Blue Mile Cup.
This year's Yiannis Latsis - Blue Mile Cup, is for the first time organized by the Nautical Club of Paleo Faliro, along with the Blue Mile, the online meeting place for Greek offshore schools graduates, aiming to create a major national sporting institution, which will enable participants to reconnect with the sailing field either on a competitive or a sea touristic level.
Referring to the sponsorship, LALIZAS' Marketing Director, Spyros Spinoulas said: "I hope this year's Latsis Cup to trigger the creation of a strong athletic institution, which will serve as a catalyst increasing young people's involvement with sailing, by giving them the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of safety at sea. Safety at sea constitutes for LALIZAS both a primary objective of its CSR program, as well as one of the company's key values".
Within the framework of both the launching of Yiannis Latsis - Blue Mile Cup, as well as the completion of Blue Mile's one year of operation, a celebrating gala event was held at the Yacht Club of Greece, on Saturday 16th of April, sponsored by LALIZAS.
