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.
