Just before the prize-giving for the first leg of the Thousand Islands Race in Porto Montenegro, the project Esimit Europa was presented to the journalists and the interested public in Montenegro, since it is the premiere participation of the fastest European yacht Esimit Europa 2 in Montenegro.
The Prime minister of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, expressed his support for this project, which connects people and countries in such a unique way, while inspiring collaboration and cooperation through the powerful symbol of sport. In giving his support, Mr. Đukanović said: »Montenegro, since restoring its statehood, is committed to realizing its European aspirations, and we are a country that fosters the differences in ethnic, religious and cultural terms. It gives me pleasure, on behalf of the Government of Montenegro and my own name, to support the project Esimit Europa, that in the best way testifies to the need for cooperation and unity in Europe, while respecting all its differences.«
Since he was not able to join the event organized in Porto Montenegro, at which the Esimit Europa project and the fastest European yacht Esimit Europa 2 were presented during the Thousand Islands Race, he invited Igor Simčič, the founder of the Esimit Europa project, for a meeting in Podgorica, and he delegated the Director of the Directorate for Youth and Sports, Mr. Igor Vušurović, to extend the support of the Montenegro government. Mr. Vušurovič visited the yacht at the dock of the beautiful marina Porto Montenegro, met the crew and at this occasion he said: »I am honoured to be present here today and I am glad that Montenegro, in such a symbolic way, can also put a mark on the sails of this European project, which represents the path of integration - the path that we follow in Montenegro as well. We wish to express our warm welcome to the team and success in the further promotion of lofty European ideals.”
