Sponsoring Lifesaving – Sportiva Sturla
Enrico Scolaro Shipbrokers S.r.l. for many years has been passionately close to lifesaving and currently we are sponsors for “Sportiva Sturla”, a lifesaving team in Genova putting together 55 boys and girls from 13 to 28 year old.
The 2010/2011 season was very fruitful and our guys did very well placing “Sportiva Sturla” as the 6th team in the Italian rank. From the 2nd to the 4th of March the Italian champion ships were hold in Livorno and “Sportiva Sturla” athletes managed to confirm the team at the 6th place, which was a great result.
Lifesaving is a sport under the International Life Saving Federation including over 100 member organizations all over the world and competitive lifesaving is good both for those doing it and for the society. As a matter of fact lifesaving is not only a competitive sport with a very high technical edge, but also a very good educational tool for the young generations since races are done both at sea and in swimming pools on the basis of real saving lives in the water using fins, torpedo’s, manikins, boards and other special tools of this kind. We strongly believe this is very valuable for our open waters’ safety which is very basically but importantly linked to shipping and that is why we are always keen on sharing this passion together with companies from all over the world supporting this same activity. We would like to congratulate our team and wish all of them the best luck for this 2011/2012 season.
