Day of the Sea Event

Within the framework of celebrating “World Maritime Day”, the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, in co-operation with the Ministry of Communications and Works, the Limassol Municipality, the Department of Merchant Shipping and the Cyprus Ports Authority, as well as other professional organisations and associations, organizes every two years the “Day of the Sea” Event.

The aim of this special Event is to raise more public knowledge and awareness about the socio-economic contribution of shipping companies to the economy of Cyprus, promote the employment opportunities that exist in the Shipping Industry, offer a social “day-out” for the youngsters and their parents involving various entertainment activities, and at the same time raise money for charity.

The "Day of the Sea" Event is open to the general public and includes various events and children's activities aiming to entertain children, young persons and their parents, as well as other activities that will provide them with the opportunity to get to know the Cyprus Shipping Industry, and the employment opportunities that exist in Shipping.  Other activities of the "Day of the Sea" Event include various sea competitions and demonstrations, an air-sea rescue drill, sailing boat, kayak and rowing competitions, jet ski racing, tug boat demonstration, and water polo matches.

Following a long-standing decision of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, the proceeds of the “Day of the Sea” Event are donated to the “One Dream One Wish” Charity Association, which fulfills wishes of children suffering from cancer and related diseases.
