Sailing Academy Wins Award

9:27am 23rd January 2013

Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy has won an important marine industry award.

The Boating Business Environment Award is in recognition of the sport venue's commitment to environmentally aware practises.

As well as hosting one of the world’s largest sporting events last summer, the Olympic Games, the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy worked tirelessly to ensure they were the first UK sailing venue to meet the British Standards Institute for sustainable event management ‘BS 8901’.

Mike Scott Partner at Charles Russell LLP was delighted to receive the trophy on behalf of the 2012 Olympic Sailing Venue, "As a long term sponsor of the WPNSA, Charles Russell has supported the dynamic venue through a series of international award wins.  This presentation was particularly fitting coming from the marine industry body itself and highlighting the lengths the onsite team at Weymouth and Portland go to in order to conserve the local beauty of the area for generations to come."
