We partner with other non-profit organisations and key businesses to help raise awareness of key environmental issues and the good practice that the recreational boating sector can adopt.
The Solent is a special place, with surprises like seahorses, thresher sharks and cuttlefish hiding just beneath its surface. Secrets of the Solent is a four-year Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust project celebrating the amazing people and wildlife that share our waters. With support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we’re bringing our underwater world to life on land and working to secure its future. Explore our marine environment through art, seafood, citizen science, volunteering opportunities, and more.
The British Universities Sailing Association (BUSA) is the governing body for university sailing in the U.K. It is affiliated to, and supported by, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and is recognized by, and works with, British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) to deliver BUCS sailing championships.
RS Aero UK Class Association was the first class association to develop a sustainability charter in partnership with The Green Blue. As part of this charter the class is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. This includes areas such as recycling of products, minimising the use of single use plastics, encouraging lift sharing and ensuring event participants undertake the Check Clean Dry approach to removing harmful invasive species from their boats and equipment. The class is also keen to help the clubs they visit to reduce their environmental footprint by identifying opportunities for The Green Blue to support them in becoming more sustainable.
Sunsail, a subsidiary of Travelopia, is the largest yacht charter holiday company in the World, operating nearly 800 yachts across more than 20 destinations. In 2009, Sunsail won the prestigious Practical Boat Owner Green Award for Service, recognising Sunsail’s commitment to sustainability, particularly for the development of its base in the British Virgin Islands. The Green Blue and Sunsail have been working together since 2008 to support sustainable boating in the UK. The relationship is a valuable opportunity to promote environmental best practice to Sunsail’s customers, skippers and staff and for The Green Blue to support Sunsail’s commitment to improving the environmental performance of its Port Solent based operation in the UK.
