According to the Mount Desert Islander, the Northeast Harbor Sailing Fleet based on Mt. Desert Island, Maine, has been awarded Gold Level Certification for its 2017 season and for hosting the 2017 IOD World Championships by Sailors for the Sea’s Clean Regatta Program.
Hosted this past August in Northeast Harbor, the IOD Worlds implemented a variety of environmentally sound “best practices” specific to the regatta. These included installing water-bottle filling stations, using reusable glasses, plates and utensils for regatta events, and improving processes for recycling and composting.
