Partnering for change
The Oyster World Rally provides a unique opportunity to make a positive impact, which is why we partner with Sea Mercy, Sailors for the Sea and other organisations to do what we can to preserve the rally route and experiences along it for future generations. Everyone who enters can take part in one of the many programmes to support local communities and help protect our oceans. Your commitment will make a real difference.
The Oyster World Rally has teamed up with organisations that are passionate about saving our seas and protecting the marine environment. We will do everything we can to look after our oceans. To find out more about our different partners, their projects and the positive impact they are having, read on.
Our yachts are the ultimate hybrid, putting those who sail them in the perfect position to make a real difference. This is just a start – we are committed to further improve our impact on the environment everywhere our yachts visit.
We have already made Oyster World Rallies and Regattas more sustainable, working with new partners and initiatives including Green Boating and Clean Regattas.
By collaborating with more partners, the Rally fleet can make a bigger impact by thoughtful provisioning, reducing environmental impact by managing waste and what goes into the ocean, and using green cleaning products. They will also work with local conservation partners and run monthly beach clean-ups. We aim to protect vulnerable ecosystems in places like the Galapagos, helping to conserve species, restore habitats and drive sustainable solutions.
As well as looking after the oceans, the Rally is an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of people in remote places. The fleet carries eye kits and will hold eye clinics at various destinations, as well as distributing glasses and solar lamps.
Our partners include Sea Mercy; Sailors for the Sea; The GOES Foundation; Galapagos Conservation Trust; Ecoworks; Oceanic Society and Alliance to End Plastic Waste. Working with these organisations, we are already making a huge difference by engaging, educating and activating the sailing and boating community to protect our oceans’ health. We believe that every little change can drive real change.
Our partners all share our outlook and high standards and are deeply committed to change. Together, we will make a positive impact and we are always open to work with new partners to amplify the positive change we already make.
