Kari Ruffe Nurmi was awarded with “We take responsibility” award

The Finnish sailing and Boating Association awarded Ruffe with a special award for his projects

We are proud to share that our Silic One promoter, Kari Ruffe Nurmi, has been awarded from the SPV association with a special “We take responsibility” award for his numerous environmental projects.

Ruffe’s quote:

“This came completely out of the blue and I am very honoured and grateful for this acknowledgement!
I am often asked where do I find ideas for projects and events? In fact, it is quite easy...
It just has to meet the following criteria: it has to be relevant for the maritime sector, it has not been done before and it has to be inspiring. 😅
On the other hand, implementation is normally not easy.
Usually, only the final output is visible to the outside world, even though months of work have gone into the project in order for it to come together and succeed. That's why it's important that the topic is also relevant to you, so that you can stay enthusiastic about it throughout.
But the most important thing about these projects is that they get people interested and even excited about boating and the great nature experiences you can have on the water.”
