We are pleased to announce that RVYC has earned a four-anchor certification in the Clean Marine BC program for our commitment to environmentally sustainable operations. A flag raising ceremony was held at the Club at noon on Friday, August 19 where members were welcome to attend and participate in this milestone event.
Clean Marine BC is a voluntary eco-certification program that demonstrates a commitment to environmental best practices by yacht clubs, marinas, harbour authorities, and boatyards that reduce and/or eliminate contaminants from entering our waters. Site verification audits are required to obtain certification for anchor ratings that range from one through five, and which remain current for three years when re-certification is required.
