The Pledge of Yachts (POY) – Is a new registry of power and sailing craft that have joined us in our initiative, if your vessel is in (POY) you are a certified member and we ask our pledgees to (REFUSE - REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE) disposable plastic products whenever and wherever possible, and to join us in our mission for zero waste, the protection of our precious oceans, waterways and wildlife, and for clean water access to those in need.

We are in essence “Sailing for Water,” a environmentally centric movement, exemplifying responsible sustainable stewardship.

We have three ways our Pledges Sail for Water:

  • Level One (The Pledge): as a Responsible Sustainable Steward for the cause, we simply ask for our pledgees to (REFUSE - REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE) disposable plastic products, whenever and wherever possible, and to join us in our mission for zero waste, the protection of our precious oceans, waterways and wildlife, and for clean water access to those in need.
  • Level Two (The Giving Pledge): is a collective effort to encourage the influential to help address some of the world's pressing concerns and to give a portion of their wealth to philanthropic causes. As a contributing Responsible Sustainable Steward, you have committed either resources or have donated funds to the collective.
  • Level Three (The Living Pledge): a Responsible Sustainable Steward who is actively conducting experiments or collecting water samples for our alliance of initiatives.
