The government officials in Cyprus have supported the Esimit Europa project since the launch of the Esimit Europa 2 yacht in 2010. During the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2012, Esimit Europa 2 was invited to carry the emblems and the logo of the Presidency. The good cooperation continued in 2013 when the Esimit Europa project supported the World Youth Championship in Sailing in Cyprus, and is crowned today with the reception of the founder of the Esimit Europa project, Igor Simčič, by the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades.
At this occasion the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, emphasized: “The Esimit Europa project with its symbol, the Esimit Europa 2 yacht, embodies the core values of modern Europe and is actively promoting the European goals and ideas, to which Cyprus is fully committed. The Cyprus Government and myself offer our full support to this project in the belief that it will be further promoting the unity, friendship and cooperation of all European nations and people.”
Igor Simčič, founder of the Esimit Europa project thanked the President for his support and said: “It is an important recognition to our constantly growing project which promotes values of collaboration, responsibility and solidarity. Such acts of official support give us strength to continue with even greater plans in the future, but most of all help us to fulfil our mission of connecting diplomacy, business and sport on the highest level.”
The Esimit Europa 2 yacht sails under the European flag and through its winning performances carries the message of a successful and united Europe around the world. Project is under the patronage of the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, and is supported by the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Sergey V.
