Through this partnership, we hope to put forward the message of the importance of sustaining our oceans and doing so through continuously creating new ways in which sport and sailing can become more sustainable.

SAMS provide the Our Isles and Oceans Ambassadors with knowledge about the oceans and steps we can all take on an individual level to work towards sustainability. Our Ambassadors are currently working alongside SAMS on a project to document the life and biology of the West Coast of Scotland so that during our sailing programmes, they can learn more and become part of the solution and education around our oceans.
