ROYAL VICTORIA YACHT CLUB SECURES HIGHEST ECO-RANKING IN CLEAN MARINE BC RECERTIFICATION OF ITS CADBORO BAY MARINA 

Clean MarineThe Royal Victoria Yacht Club’s Cadboro Bay marina has earned the highest certification in Clean Marine BC, a voluntary eco-certification program for recreational boating facilities that is run by Georgia Strait Alliance.

To be eligible for Clean Marine BC certification, boating facilities must meet environmental standards set by the program and are awarded a ranking that ranges from one to five anchors. These anchor ratings reflect operational practices and initiatives that help to reduce the impact of recreational boating in local fresh and saltwater throughout British Columbia.
