Members of the RHKYC's Sustainability Working Group (SWG) are always getting comments and suggestions from members about things that concern them. Can the Club do…? What are you doing about…? We should be doing more about…!

The Club has had a significant sustainability programme in place for quite a while now, but in recent years members are demanding we do better. The current SWG has had many proposals accepted by the General Committee and progressively being put in place. But do members really know what is going on?

We think it is time to share some of our ideas and programmes, and get input from members as to what is of interest to them.

We also want to share some of our problems and see if you can help the SWG move something forward that you and we are concerned about.

So join us on the 24 February in person or on Zoom for our first “Sustainability Town Hall and let’s talk about the: 1. Clean Regatta Programme 2. Carbon Reduction – Solar Energy Project 3. Preventing Single-use Plastics 4. Problems with Recycling – from plastics to sails 5. Pick Up Plastics Campaign – where we can do something different 6. Kellett Island Marine Ecology Study – we need some help! 7. Sustainable Ship Shop – new products and Sustainable T-Shirt Design Competition. 8. Monitoring the Clubs Performance – Sustainability Reporting 9. Sustainability Policy – where should we be looking at next? 10. And anything else?

Sustainability Really Matters

Free to all members and their guests. Please book by clicking the Book Now button on the top of the page so we know how many are joining in person and online.
