This is a new sports and business project of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone; its purpose is to combine the promotion of sailing as a leisure activity that encourages people to make new contacts and exchange experiences.
As an institution supporting the development of the maritime industry, the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone is actively involved in initiatives related to the promotion of water sports, especially sailing.
An excellent example was the participation of the PSEZ staff in the autumn edition of the regatta organised by the Business Sailing League, which provided many positive emotions in addition to a race between the representatives of the Pomeranian business community. Each participant could learn about a fighting strategy, how to trim the sails and various boat navigation methods.
Respective rounds were held at two-week intervals using the same high-performance sports yachts - Delphia 24 OneDesign.
The project helped to create an atmosphere that encouraged teamwork, healthy activity and the creation of new business contacts.

As a result of working with the Sports Club at the University of Physical Education and Sport (AWFiS) in Gdańsk, the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone was granted the status of a sailing section partner. This is another sporting initiative that supports sailing among children and the youth of Poland.
Thanks to the cooperation between the Pomeranian SEZ and the Club, the youngest sailors in the season of 2016 could develop their passion during the training sessions organised within the school, as well as taking part in competitions and races, such as the regattas for the Cup of the President of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.
Supporting this form of leisure activity among children is one of the key aspects of Corporate Social Responsibility of the Pomeranian SEZ, as thanks to its location close to the seaside resort, it is able to use the potential of water sports to build a cohesive relationship between social and business activities.
