Sailors for the Sea honors America’s Cup effort

Ocean conservation non-profit Sailors for the Sea announced that the 34th America’s Cup earned a Sea Platinum Level Clean Regattas certification, the highest level possible.

As the 34th America’s Cup Clean Regattas Partner, Sailors for the Sea worked with the America’s Cup Event Authority to expand and enhance its Clean Regattas program.

“The collaborative efforts between Sailors for the Sea and ACEA resulted in an expanded Clean Regattas program that will benefit the ocean that boaters rely on and established a model framework within which other world-class sporting events can strive to achieve the highest possible levels of sustainability,” Sailors for the Sea chairman and co-founder David Rockefeller Jr. said in a statement.

In March 2012, the America’s Cup Event Authority published the 34th America’s Cup Sustainability Plan, which outlined the organization’s approach to delivering sustainable event activities in San Francisco. The America’s Cup Event Authority pledged to understand the event’s effects, reduce potentially negative effects as much as possible and maximize legacy benefits.

Event performance and progress were tracked and monitored to inform stakeholders and the public about activities and achievements and provide transparent reporting on event activities in San Francisco.

The America’s Cup Event Authority and Sailors for the Sea established an 81-point best management practices checklist that was evaluated by an independent review panel.
