The America's Cup Event Authority is partnering with local and global ocean conservation efforts to reach people around the world who have an affinity for the world's oceans and motivate them to act to improve the health of the oceans.

As the August launch of the America’s Cup World Series in Cascais, Portugal, draws near, the authority is introducing Sailors for the Sea as the first of these partners.

“Sailors have the responsibility to ensure that our sailing grounds remain protected for future generations to enjoy. And as we are delivering the most prestigious sailing regatta in the world, we believe that we have an even greater responsibility,” Neill Duffy, the authority’s director of sustainability, said in a statement.

“Looking at the way we manage the on-the-water event is a natural place to start on our sustainability path toward setting a new standard for our sport,” Duffy added. “We believe that our partnership with Sailors for the Sea will demonstrate our commitment to delivering the 34th America’s Cup as an event with a positive social purpose.”
