If you’ve ever wondered how to make your sailing experience more environmentally friendly, The Green Blue is an excellent place to start.
The environmental awareness initiative has been carrying out promotional and awareness raising work among sailors and the wider boating community since being established by the RYA and British Marine in 2005.
The Green Blue offers clear and straightforward advice on every from anti-fouling to cleaning and maintenance, oil and fuel handling, efficient use of resources, sewage and waste disposal, and protecting wildlife and habitats. There’s even a website with links to organisations offering green boating products, and information for the sailors and clubs determined to go green.
Explore the site before you next get out on the water, and start making a difference one tack at a time.
