Sustainability

As Wakatere enters the fourth season of the club's Sustainability programme, we are more determined to educate, develop, and expand on our initiatives in 2021/22 and beyond.  

We are fortunate to be located on Auckland’s beautiful east coast. The ocean we look out to is more than just our playground, it is part of who we are, and we are committed to doing our part to look after this precious resource that serves us all.

YNZ Clean Club Launch

YNZ launched the Clean Club Program Dec 2021. Wakatere has two members who have taken a key role in developing the program for Wakatere and as a club, we have registered our intention to becoming a 3 Star certified Clean Club in 2022. More...
 
We look forward to taking our members and wider community with us on this journey as we continue our efforts to be sustainable and reduce the environmental impact of our day-to-day club activities.

Sailors for the Sea

Wakatere has targeted specific regattas by registering with the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas for certification since 2018. This is the world's leading sustainability certification for water-based events. It assists us to adopt standards and practices that will mitigate the effects of unsightly and environmentally unsafe refuse and it flows on to general practice at the club by setting a benchmark.

The Sailors for the Sea action points dovetail into our club Strategic Document - to maintain and develop the Club's physical environment and infrastructure and to create a strong sense of club consciousness, diversity, and community.
