PUPA Bilişim has been providing support to the sport of sailing at Cenk Tekkaya Denizcilik for 4 years and has been instrumental in introducing over 100 athletes to the sport.  In the 2014 and 2015 seasons, the students sponsored by PUPA were very successful in the inter-university sailing races with PUPA’s Fifty Fifty, winning several cups.
