Ocean Conservation Partner:

Summer Sailstice celebrates life under sail and, with that, the sailing environment that surrounds us. Sailing's intimate connection to the environment creates a relationship of respect for the sea and it should go without saying we all have a role to play in sustaining it for future generations. For this reason we encourage all participants to contribute funds for miles sailed on Summer Sailstice to Sailors for the Sea. Any amount helps. There are a lot of sailors out there which will make for a great global celebration of sailing and a great contribution to ocean conservation.  

About Sailors for the Sea:

Marine life and vital coastal habitats are straining under the increasing pressure of global use. The ocean, which was once considered inexhaustible and resilient, is, in fact, finite and fragile.  Sailors for the Sea educates and engages the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans. The boating community has a profound passion for - and understanding of - the world's seas and Sailors for the Sea was founded to galvanize the sailing and boating community around ocean health issues.

David Rockefeller, Jr., an avid racing sailor and deeply committed to the environment, founded Sailors for the Sea as a direct result of his work on the Pew Oceans Commission that identified profound and alarming ocean health issues. The list of these issues is extensive and includes marine debris, overfishing, habitat alteration and degradation, non-point source pollution, invasive species and inconsistent ocean management policies.

Sailors for the Sea core programs include Clean Regattas, Ocean Watch Essays, Certified Sea Friendly, and Rainy Day Kits. Our nationwide Clean Regattas program assists and certifies yacht clubs and regatta organizers as providing clean events that minimize impacts upon our oceans. {Read More here}.
