The BYC Environmental Policy
Our skippers will ensure our boats are carefully and safely fuelled to prevent spillages and pollution.
Please take care when refuelling our charter yachts to adhere to this approach.
We ask all the BYC team and guests to be mindful with regards to water use, such as turning off taps when not in use.
Our seas and the seabed are precious resources. The BYC team are committed to adhering to all local recommended guidance to protect this ecosystem, and we will also communicate this to our guests where necessary.
This includes the location of sensitive habitats and/or species, plus any voluntary ‘no anchor’ zones.
During your charter, we ask all guests and BYC team members to responsible with their waste.
Please use the containers provided at all times, and separate by material-type for recycling, where applicable.
No materials, rubbish or waste should be discarded overboard at any time.
We will keep electricity use to a minimum during all our activities, including office use.
Where possible, we will use eco-friendly lightbulbs (both onboard and in the office) and we ask all lights to be turned off when not in use.
Where possible, we will use email rather than printed materials to communicate and promote our activities.
Where possible, we will use ecologically-sensitive cleaning materials for both the interior and exterior of our charter yachts.
When ashore, waste materials such as old anti-foul is to be responsibly disposed of.
