Do Your Part for the Environment-Sail

In what might be considered some of the best news to come out of Washington, D.C. , the legislative and executive branches of the government announced today that they would like the "carbon zero benefits of sailing to be taken into consideration as business grants are being doled out to strengthen the marine industry". In what might be considered a bit of an April Fool's joke when you take today's date into consideration, it reinforces something that many sailors already know- Sailing is Green. For the full press release- see the link at the bottom of this page.

So maybe there is hope for Washington? Just Look at Today's date and see why...
