Clean Regatta

2017 Chester Race Week - Bronze Clean Regatta CertificateChester Race Week earned a Bronze award again last year from Sailors For the Sea – the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events. Since the program’s inception in 2006, over 800 regattas, programs, rallies, sailing centers and cruises have registered as Clean Regattas.

Help us make this year’s event a Clean Regatta by implementing some best practices with your team; provide re-usable water bottles instead of plastic, practice recycling and proper waste disposal during the event. For more helpful tips and information check out the Green Boating Guide for your go-to resource offering practical information on maintenance and running a boat in an efficient manner to help you save money and avoid costly environmental mistakes.
