The Green Blue is the environmental programme which is joint funded by British Marine and the Royal Yachting Association. It aims to inspire sustainable recreational boating for cleaner, healthier waters.

The Green Blue’s Campaign Manager, Kate Fortnam, will be joined on stage for both days by The Final Straw’s Bianca Carr, and Olympian, Hannah Mills, who is representing The Big Plastic Pledge. With a discussion on Dinghy sailing for a Sustainable Future.

At its stand, The Green Blue will be running an interactive feature a Marine CSI: Plastic Pollution which will allow visitors to get up close with sand samples and learn just how long it really takes for litter to biodegrade.

Also taking place at this year’s Dinghy Show will be the annual prize-giving of The Green Blue University Sailing Sustainability Awards. Now in its fifth year the challenge encourages university sailing clubs up and down the country to take action and make their sailing more environmentally sustainable. Prizes will be awarded at 1.15pm on Saturday 29 March in the Great Hall.
