Rob Howie - Sailors for the Sea

Rob Howie

“I have always been an environmentalist. More recently, I was inspired by fellow sailor Dee Caffari in her role as skipper of ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ in the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race. I believe in the power of taking personal responsibility and leading by example before asking others to do the same.”
Rob has been a strong advocate of ocean sustainability since he served as Commodore of the Corinthian Yacht Club, Marblehead, which became a model of sustainability for all six yacht clubs and their members in that historic sailing and boating community. He has spoken on the topic of clean seas and turning the tide on plastic to numerous groups. For his leadership, he received Sustainable Marblehead’s Conservation Award, and the Marblehead Chamber of Commerce’s Harbor Award, in 2019.
