  • Sports: On the Bay

    It seems like everyone is getting on the bandwagon to "be green." And that is a good thing, if we want to preserve our way of life. Whether you believe that global warming is a threat or not, indications from Mother Nature make us at least question the changes we are seeing on our planet. The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has become aware of the threat to our environment, and is doing something about it. According to their website, "sailing enjoys a reputation of one of the most environmentally friendly sports going, and ISAF is aiming to maintain and further enhance the sport's image with the release of the ISAF Code of Environmentally Friendly Behavior. With regattas and racing regularly taking place in some of the most spectacular locations around the world, and the sport's unique link to the natural power of the wind, it is no surprise that sailors know the value of protecting the world's seas, lakes and waterways. By launching the Code of Environmentally Friendly Behavior, ISAF is aiming to showcase a few simple steps to sailors everywhere which will help preserve the natural venues that play host to our sport around the world."
