Trasmapi on board with island's sailing school

foto caiacs 2018Secretary of sport Jordi Vidal and Trasmapi company spokesman Rafael Cardona paid a visit to Formentera's municipal sailing school, the Escola de Vela, of which Trasmapi is one of the leading sponsors.

Per an agreement reached last year, the day offered a chance for the transport company to present the school—known locally as the Escola Municipal de Vela—with kayaks and a range of other nautical gear Vidal called “crucial to continuing the school's mission”. He noted that despite the fact the school will continue operating out of provisional structures until construction of the island's nautical sports centre is complete, instructors have already given over three hundred courses there this year.

Cardona, for his part, reaffirmed Trasmapi's commitment to the school, calling the present and future collaboration between the company and the school “a pleasure” and saying, “For us, it's all about promoting sport and Formentera's young people”.

Last year Trasmapi made a two-year, renewable €7,000 pledge in support of the school in 2017 and 2018.

The money goes towards service upgrades, nautical gear for instruction and practice at the school by students of sailing, windsurf and kayak. Trasmapi also offers maritime transport between Formentera and Eivissa for people, vehicles and goods relating to activities at the sailing school.
