the support of the joint candidacy of four municipalities of Slovenian Istria for the European Capital of Culture 2025

All four mayors of Piran, Izola, Koper, and Ankaran, featured in the photography together with the team of the best Slovenian sailing yacht “Way of Life” have given their support to the joint candidacy of four municipalities of the Slovenian Istria for the European Capital of Culture 2025. The leadership of the EWOL project that is gaining international visibility through ambassadorship of one the most advanced sailing yachts in the world acknowledged the plethora of synergies and potential in this candidacy ranging from sports, culture, economy, diplomacy, and tourism.

“In spite of the international scope of our project, we are proud of this region, especially of its virtually unlimited potential that could be unleashed in case of winning the ECOC title,” pointed out Gorazd Mauri, the head of the EWOL project. With its numerous successes in various Olympic disciplines featuring large yachts, the Slovenian sailing is a proud ambassador of not only the Slovenian Istria but the whole Slovenia as a maritime country, where knowledge, innovation, and cultural achievements play a crucial role in everyday life. “Just as close collaboration and dedication to the common goal can be the yacht team’s key winning factor, so is the joint effort in pursuing this ambitious candidacy. Therefore, we welcome the joint initiative of the four municipalities. For this purpose, a graphic image (the logo) of the candidacy will accompany us on the mainsail at future regattas,” added Mauri.
