We have partnered with two of our favorite organizations in Newport – Clean Ocean Access and Sail Newport
Clean Ocean Access
The Clean Ocean Access organization has a vision – A healthy ocean!
And their goal is Clean Ocean Access
- Clean: Eliminate Marine Debris
- Ocean: Improve Coastal Water Quality
- Access: Protect and Preserve Shoreline Access
This partnership has a lot of meaning to us. We spend all our time in and on the waters of Newport Harbor, Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound, where there is so much natural beauty which is in desperate need of preservation. We are stewards of our environment, so we’re taking an active stance on cleaning up and helping to maintain our environment so it will get healthy, stay healthy and flourish for generations to come.
The mission of the Sail Newport Education Program is to provide hands-on educational opportunities for children in our community to be exposed to life on and under the waters of Narragansett Bay and beyond. The education program at Sail Newport will expose and educate participants to the fundamentals of sailing, sustainability, marine science, weather and ocean conservation in partnership with related non-profit organizations and educational institutions
We LOVE Sail Newport and we’re so excited to partner with them. We’ll be using Madeleine and Rum Runner II as education platforms, taking local children out as part of their school curriculum for a hands on education on the water.
