Supported Organisations

Australian Sailing has long been committed to supporting relevant charitable or other not-for-profit organisations who share a similar commitment to our stated values. Organisations have been selected as our official partners, aligning with our strategic initiatives:

  • Environment
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Safety

In 2023 we are proud to partner with the following: 

Clean Up Australia

More than 20 million Aussies have participated in Clean Up Australia activities and events over the past three decades.   Over that time Clean Up Australia has evolved to provide practical solutions to help all Australians live more   sustainably every day of the year, and emerged as one of the country’s most recognised, credible and trusted   environmental charities.

Today our focus is as much on preventing rubbish entering our environment as it is removing what has already   accumulated. What was started over thirty years ago, by an "average Australian" who had a simple idea to make a   difference in his own backyard has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event.

Of course, Australia's environmental challenges can't be solved in just one day, so Clean Up Australia works with community, government and businesses to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year.
