Sustainable Sailing

Sailing is by nature a sustainable activity, but polluted waters and crowded marinas, boatyards, and anchorages are signs that problems must be addressed in order to keep it that way. What does 'green' mean anyway? Is it improved efficiency? More considerate behavior? Greater awareness and less ignorance? It is all of the above and more, but one thing it is not is a luxury. 'Going green' is becoming the norm, while 'staying dirty' will become increasingly expensive, inconvenient, and, eventually, obsolete.
