Another First for the Pathfinder Women at the Helm Regatta hosted by the National Yacht Club!
This is the highest award possible with the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas
programme, which is the world’s only sustainability certification for water-based events. It is the first time it has been awarded to an event in Ireland. Platinum status involves achieving 70 out of 75 “green” practices to reduce the impact of an event on the environment and leave a legacy of new habits and awareness.
This award was achieved by the National Yacht Club and Irish Sailing thanks to the
cooperation and enthusiasm of the event participants, the commitment by race officials who committed whole heartedly to the aim of minimising the impact of the event on the sea in Dublin Bay and great teamwork by the event ‘Green Team’ members Gail MacAllister,IS, and Susan Spain and Tim O’Brien, NYC.
