Nicholson Yachts takes the lead in the charter industry with the Clean Seas Pledge
The VOLVO Ocean Race fleet has made landfall in Newport, Rhode Island, the only North American stopover in the grueling global sailing competition.
The Race Village at scenic Fort Adams State Park is open to the public, free of charge, through May 20, 2018. There you can view the fleet, watch in-port races, and educate yourself about sustainability issues, including preserving ocean health and taking the Clean Seas Pledge.
With the slogan, “Help Turn the Tide on Plastic,” the United Nations Environment Clean Seas Pledge has been adopted by Volvo Ocean Race organizers. The pledge is one component of a multifaceted platform that showcases innovative solutions to the plastic pollution crisis and encourages participation in the sustainability movement.
