WesMex Commitment to Clean Regattas

Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas LogoIn 2013, Vallarta Yacht Club joined Sailors For The Sea, committing to principles for clean regattas. After that year's event, VYC was awarded the Clean Reagatta Bronze Certification, and continued with the Clean Regatta program in 2014. This year, we continue our commitment for keeping the seas clean for future generations of sailors.

Quotes from other Clean Regatta Participants

“Being a Clean Regatta has not only helped Nantucket water quality, but has educated us and helped us run a better event. We have seen many ancillary benefits from being a Clean Regatta, including increased sponsorship and donors, and cost savings at the Yacht Clubs.” – Diana Brown, Nantucket Community Sailing

“EXCELLENT! Sailors for the Sea had my back from the start from when I introduced being more environmentally friendly with events at the Annisquam Yacht Club to actually hosting a Clean Regatta. The fact that Sailors for the Sea exists gives a huge boost and support to others trying to make headway for ocean conservation. Thanks for all the support and for the stickers!” – Amy Picotte, Annisquam Yacht Club.
