We are very excited to announce that World Sailing has chosen 4 finalists for their 2020 World Sailing 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award. More importantly, one of the finalists of the Sustainability Award is Starboard. As you can imagine this is a very exciting stage for us!

We need your help! Vote Starboard for this years Sustainability Award.

At Starboard we do take every chance to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions from our whole business runnings. We also plant one mangrove tree to absorb the remaining emissions ten times over! Watch the video below to find out more!

On the other hand, another reason for Starboard being a Sustainability Award finalist is thanks to our responsibility for plastics. We have eliminated single-use plastic and use recycled or natural materials where possible. Furthermore, for each board we produce we reclaim 1.1. KG of plastic for each board!
