Protecting the oceans - Playing our part with Sailors for the Sea

Sailors for the Sea

Co-founded in 2004 by David Rockefeller Jr. and Dr. David Treadway, two avid sailors who recognised the importance of educating and activating this constituency of ocean enthusiasts. In 2018, the organisation joined forces with Oceana, the largest international advocacy organisation dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Together, they are creating a global network of active, engaged ocean champions within the sailing and boating community who are taking action to save our oceans.

Since 2018, we have worked with Sailors for the Sea to run cleaner regattas. Following Gold certification of our 2019 Palma Regatta, we are applying the principles to the Oyster World Rally 2022-23 to make sure it has the minimal impact on the places we visit en route. “Over the last several years, Oyster Yachts has put sustainability at the forefront of their regattas and world rally. We have enjoyed working with the Oyster team to find ways they can make a positive impact for our oceans and instil a lasting sense of stewardship with the sailors and the communities they will be visiting,” said Shelley Brown, Sailors for the Sea Director.
