Clean Sailors is a not-for-profit, mobilising the global sailing community in conservation of our oceans. Launched in July 2020, Clean Sailors' mission is to set a new standard of sailing within our global sailing community: clean sailing, by raising awareness of ocean conservation opportunities within our sport, our passion, our pastime.
The Crew's aim is to make an ocean ambassador of each and every sailor around the world. Work includes campaigning for legislation to better protect our ocean, education, advice and outreach on conservation opportunities within the sailing and marine communities and sharing scientific research on issues facing our global waters.
Clean Sailors counts the Henri-Lloyd, the Ocean Cruising Club, British Marine, Finsulate and Sail & Explore Association, amongst its early supporters.
Boatfolk aims to create great places for everyone that wants to be in, on, under or by the water. With 11 marinas in beautiful locations around the UK, it’s easy to have fun afloat. Our waterside destinations are more than just a place to berth your boat. They are a place to enjoy it in new ways. Some want bigger boats, some want small sailing boats, but many just want the opportunity to get involved, get out on the water, and give it a try — no strings (or ropes) attached.
Through our platform for change, Coastline Deadline, we are focused on marine wildlife, ocean plastics, clean water and renewable energy. We’re doing what we can to minimise our environmental impact and helping our community make positive changes too.

Created in 2016 by the French-Swiss navigator and explorer Yvan Bourgnon, the NGO The SeaCleaners acts against plastic pollution, both at sea and on land, through corrective and preventive missions. As an observer member of the United Nations Environment Programme and supported by the Albert II Foundation of Monaco and the CCI France International network, The SeaCleaners has set itself objectives that revolve around four areas:
- The protection of the environment with the collection of floating waste and the collection of waste on land with our teams of volunteers ;
- Education and pedagogy, with the development of awareness-raising activities for the populations affected, the general public and decision-makers;
- Scientific research;
- Promotion of the transition to a circular economy.
In particular, The SeaCleaners is developing a pioneering solution for the collection and recovery of floating plastic macro-waste: the Manta, a groundbreaking vessel equipped with an onboard plant, which will be launched in 2024. This giant of the seas will be the first deep-sea vessel capable of collecting and mass processing floating oceanic waste before it fragments and enters the marine ecosystem on a long-term basis.
