RYA Green Blue and World Sailing resources

PYC follows the Green Blue programme. A joint environmental awareness programme created by the Royal Yachting Association and British Marine. Established in 2005, its mission is to promote sustainable boating for cleaner, healthier waters. Indeed a former club member was instrumental in establishing this programme in 2005 and the club was one of the first to be assessed.
