The 34th America's Cup - Sailors for the Sea

The 34th America’s Cup

 July 15, 2011  | By: Oceana

As the Official Clean Regattas Partner of the 34th America’s Cup, Sailors for the Sea was proud to implement our Clean Regattas program which supports a clean and healthy ocean ecosystem. Through this partnership, we helped reduce the environmental footprint of the 2011 – 2013 America’s Cup World Series, the 2013 Louis Vuitton Cup and the 34th America’s Cup.  Sailors for the Sea is the first environmental non-profit organization to partner with the America’s Cup in its storied 160 year history!

Additionally, Sailors for the Sea engaged with students at 2011- 2013 America’s Cup World Series events with our Rainy Day Kits program, environmental lesson plans focused on marine ecology.

We were also proud to be a global partner of the 34th America’s Cup Healthy Oceans Project, a collaboration between the America’s Cup Event Authority and leading ocean conservation NGO’s.

The America’s Cup Healthy Ocean Project focused on three important areas of ocean literacy – increasing the percentage of the oceans under protection, encouraging sustainable sea life choices and reducing the amount of single use plastic that ends up in the ocean – all areas where individuals can take personal action and make a difference.
