World Sailing invites your input on sustainability

Here is a chance to have your say on a major international sustainability initiative that will impact our leisure boating community!   

Last year we published an article about how the sailing regatta world is raising the awareness level around sustainability matters, and setting positive examples for our industry to follow.

We mentioned that World Sailing Organisation, the governing body for the sport of sailing, had announced their new sustainability strategy, and a leading group of experts had been appointed to its first sustainability commission.

The commission is chaired by Mike Golding OBE, one of the world’s most accomplished and successful offshore sailors, and Dan Reading has joined the team as Sustainability Program Manager. Dan was London’s 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Competition Sustainability Manager, and has worked with several organisations implementing sustainable event management systems, including RYA / British Marine, Land Rover BAR, and the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy. 

World Sailing Sustainability Agenda 2030 is launched.

In November 2017 World Sailing launched a bold ambition for sailing’s contribution to global sustainability at its Sustainability Forum, which was held in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
