MRS GRAÇA GOMES, Director of the SOS Social Center in Mindelo:

On behalf of the SOS Social Center of Mindelo and the children we would like to present our sincere thanks to all the participants of the regatta for your kind visit and the donations that will certainly promote positive changes in the lives of our children.

The children loved the activity, the experience of knowing the yachts and the conviviality with children and people of other countries. It was a unique experience that will stay in their memory for life.
