The OK Dinghy Worlds in 2019 is to adopt the “sailors for the sea” best practices to produce a clean regatta.
The Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regattas programme is designed to assist events and local communities to adopt standards and practices that will mitigate the effects of unsightly and environmentally unsafe refuse. The programme defines 25 best practices with guidelines on how to run any water based event in a sustainable way.
