Message from President Mattarella for the sailing World Cup of the Paralympic class Hansa 303
′′ It is with great pleasure that I send a warm greeting to the crews participating in the Hansa 303 World Championship which takes place in Palermo these days. Over 180 athletes from 25 countries with 118 boats competing – it’s truly an amazing success for a sport that shows how barriers can be overcome.
Sport is everyone’s right, and we need commitment from the institutions so that its exercise can overcome any physical and environmental obstacles. On the extraordinary positive example of Paralympic champions, I can only hope that sport will become more and more an instrument of inclusion, social participation and personal affirmation.
I would like to appreciate all those who made this event possible starting with the section of the Naval League of Palermo which, in the event of its 120th birthday, hosts this beautiful event.
Have a nice wind everyone “.
