Sailors for the Sea

Tall Ships Charleston has joined the race to restore ocean health with Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas program. As the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events, the Clean Regattas certification system enables sailors to protect their local waters with 25 Best Practices that make sustainability approachable and easy. Since 2006, over 1,000 Clean Regattas have been run in 30 countries and in over half of all the United States. The ocean is in crisis, every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean from land each year and 40% of the oceans are heavily affected by human activity, including pollution, overfishing and destructive fishing practices, and the loss of coastal habitats. One of the Best Practices we will implement is assembling a green team to help sort recycling. But we need your help. At the event, we ask that you dispose of your plastic water bottles and cups in recycling bins.
