About Clean Sailors

Clean Sailors is a not-for-profit, mobilising the global sailing community in conservation of our oceans. Launched in July 2020, Clean Sailors' mission is to set a new standard of sailing within our global sailing community: clean sailing, by raising awareness of ocean conservation opportunities within our sport, our passion, our pastime.

The Crew's aim is to make an ocean ambassador of each and every sailor around the world.

Clean Sailors counts Henri-Lloyd, the Ocean Cruising Club, Finsulate and Ecoworks Marine amongst it’s early supporters. 

In July 2021, Clean Sailors launched Cleaner Marina with industry partners including boatfolk, MDL Marinas, savvy navvy and Ecoworks Marine, to encourage better, cleaner standards across marinas, ports and harbours, globally. Cleaner Marina already has over 30 marina partners, globally. 

The Clean Sailors Youth Racing Team was launched in January 2022 with three young champion sailors; CJ Perez (18), Lukas Hesse (22) and Jann Schüpbach (21).

Lukas Hesse (22), was named German Champion in 2020, and has a background in 29er and 49er dinghies, more recently having transitioned to WASZP and 69F boats to realise his dream of racing foils.

At just 18 years old, CJ Perez recently won the 2021 US National Championships in the WASZP class, and has been selected to join the United States SailGp Team - at 18 years old she is the youngest sailor ever to join the SailGP league, and the first ever latina.

And, after Olympic campaigns in the 470 Dinghy, plus national and international podium stands, Jann Schüpbach (21) is preparing for the WASZP European and World Championships, alongside the Clean Sailors Youth Racing Team’s 2022 Gold Cup journey.

Through the Clean Sailors Youth Racing Team, Lukas, CJ, Jann and Clean Sailors aim to inspire and encourage as many fellow sailors as possible to become active ambassadors for the protection of our oceans.
