Responsible tourism: Galicia tall ship sailing holiday

Environment

Water: Being on a ship we are naturally very careful with our water use as the availability is limited to our tank size, and on longer trips this can have a real impact. This really brings home to our participants how much water we normally waste through simple everyday tasks like brushing your teeth or washing up. We also have a small water maker on board which combined with our storage tank means we need to use less from mains supplies where we visit, ensuring minimal impact on the local resources.

Waste: We store our rubbish on board the ship to correctly dispose for recycling on shore. We don't use any single use plastics for any events on board and encourage our visitors to use reusable cups & water canisters.


Energy: We are primarily powered by wind whenever possible! So you may not be able to charge your electrical items 24/7, but that’s o.k, we have conversations with each other instead! We limit the number of hours we do run the generator in order to minimise fuel & noise pollution. We do have engines, but use them as little as possible.

Community

Local crafts & culture: On this trip we will be going on a guided tour of the city including gastronomical & historical routes. We will use a local guide so you can be sure to get the best information about the citys history and traditional foods.

We encourage you to buy any souvenirs or other keepsakes from small, independent shops on all our trips as this helps the local businesses and ensures we add to the towns we visit rather than take all the time.

Volunteering & charity: We are currently collaborating with the non profit project Sail a Future. Children from various schools around the world are painting their hopes and dreams for the future of our planet on old, discarded sails. These messages will then be transformed, the sails cut into pieces and sewn into bags. With the money raised from the sale of the bags they can fund various sustainability projects around the world as well as reducing waste by recycling the original sails.
