Sailors for the Sea is The Official Clean Regattas Partner of the 34th America’s Cup. The America’s Cup Event Authority (ACEA) has partnered with the global and local ocean conservation organisation which reaches people around the world who have an affinity for the world’s oceans to help motivate actions to improve ocean health.
Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas certification provides independent, third-party verification that a yacht club, sailing program, or regatta is environmentally responsible, and is doing its utmost to protect the waters upon which people sail. By making the Clean Regattas Pledge, regattas, yacht clubs, and sailing programs commit to protecting clean waters and shores. Participants vow to fulfill, and encourage others to fulfill, the goals and requirements of Clean Regattas, and to work to protect waters for the use and enjoyment of this and future generations. Sailors for the Sea engages with youth at World Series events through our Rainy Day Kits program, environmental lesson plans focused on marine ecology. We are also proud to be a partner of the America’s Cup Healthy Oceans Project.
