Y.CO is committed to preserving the oceans for the next generation and is a sponsor of The Ocean Awards. In 2014, Y.CO established YACHT.CLUB, a membership club for yacht crew and industry professionals, in support of the Blue Marine Foundation. 100% of all YACHT.CLUB subscription fees go directly to BLUE’s work to make 10% of the world’s oceans protected by 2020. Y.CO has also set up Oceans.Eleven, a committee working together to improve the yachting industry, including protecting the oceans we work on. Additionally, the Y.CO Destination Education programme provides tutors for charters to give an insight into local issues in charter destinations. The Y.CO Team is strongly encouraged to support ocean preservation and other charities.
