Today we celebrate the important role the ocean plays in our world. For any sailor who has spent hours or days staring into the sea, there is no denying the sheer magnificence. An ecosystem that supports so much of our lives, a beauty that reminds us how great a gift it is to live on this planet and a force that is not to be denied.
For sailors, the sea deserves the utmost respect and reverence. It allows us to travel the world in the most wonderful way. It also feeds us, gives us a vast playground to explore, and humbles us to our core.
Today and every day we celebrate the Ocean. We encourage all of our sailors to join Sailors for the Sea to learn how to protect our oceans and sail in a cleaner way. We rely on the ocean, and we should be at the forefront of preserving and protecting it.
