Irish Sailing Clean Seas


Irish Sailing takes the Clean Seas - Turn the Tide on Plastic pledge.

We all know the need to reduce the amount of plastics in our seas and oceans. Each year at least eight million tonnes of plastic leak into the ocean; it’s time to take action.

Irish Sailing has taken the Clean Seas “Turn the tide on plastic” pledge which will see us working to reduce the amount of plastics we use in all the events we host.

That includes looking at things like using recyclable or biodegradable materials for events, from promotional materials to catering,  and thinking proactively about how small changes can impact positively.

To start, Irish Sailing will be working with both the National Yacht Club and the Royal St George Yacht Club, looking at the Volvo Youth Pathway National Championships 2018 to see where we can reduce our reliance on plastics.
