David Williams, SLYC Member and Board Member of RYANI, will talk about The Green Blue, a joint initiative by the RYA and British Marine. This is a great opportunity to hear about our responsibility to ensure that coastal and inland waters remain in great shape far into the future.
This includes information on Strangford Lough – a Marine Conservation Zone. The area has different legal protections to protect marine habitats and species, including birds. The Green Blue has been prioritising the area as one in three across the UK and educating clubs and instructors on its importance.
This is a good opportunity to discuss one of the biggest issues in boating and gain the latest knowledge and advice. It also gave us a great opportunity to think about how we can make a positive difference to the environment.
“With the help of The Green Blue, RYANI continues to raise awareness and educate boaters on how to lower their environmental impact, from respecting wildlife to reducing single use plastic.”
