Sustainable sailing

Members of SPSN feel that it’s a distinct privilege to sail in South Pacific waters, and we’re delighted to share the unspoiled beauty of our region with visiting mariners.

But the fragility of our near-shore and offshore ecosystems demands that all who sail here practice what we call sustainable sailing. That is, maintain a “zero pollution” policy wherever they travel, including using environmentally friendly soaps and sun block.

At SPSN we consider it to be one of our most important responsibilities to inform and educate visiting sailors on the ways they can maximize their enjoyment while sailing our waters, yet “leave a clean wake” and do no environmental harm.
