SAILORS FOR THE SEA GREEN BOATER AND CLEAN REGATTAS PROGRAMS

In 2018 the Corinthian Yacht Club became a partner in the UN’s Clean Seas Campaign, and in 2020 we became a partner in Sailors for the Sea Green Boater and Clean Regattas programs. The Club takes responsibility for creating awareness among our members and encouraging them and the wider community to help turn the tide on single-use plastics.

The Corinthian stands as a proactive organization in protecting Marblehead Harbor and the boating and sailing community. The ocean defines so much of our history, adds to our quality of life, and is why we choose to live here. We have an obligation to preserve and protect it. The first step is taking personal responsibility. We invite all members to continue to be proactive in this effort.
