Ensuring a lasting positive impact of our sport and safeguarding the future of our planet’s waters

THE ISSUE

All forms of sailing depend on the availability of clean, healthy waters, primarily oceans and seas but also rivers, lakes and inland waterways. The planet’s waters are facing an unprecedented crisis and sailors and the sailing community could do much more to promote sustainability.

IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF OUR WATERS

As sailors, we have a responsibility and a vested interest in protecting our waters and leading the way in sustainable practice and activity. We know that sailors are waking up to the sustainability challenge we face and taking on the baton of protecting our waters.

PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS AND ACTIVITIES

Work with organisations that seek to educate and encourage greater sustainable practice amongst boat owners and sailors as well as ensure best practice across events and equipment choice.

MOBILISE LOW CARBON TECHNOLOGIES AND BEHAVIOURS

Support initiatives that harness innovation and technology to develop new technologies that will influence behaviours that, in turn, will protect the planet’s water.
