Eco-Friendly Notes

Sail Lanka Charter is a daughter company of the non profit foundation 'Building A Future foundation'. Just like the foundation care of the environment is very important to us. We do not only try to develop an eco friendly activity, sailing, on the island, we try to be act responsible towards the environment in all our actions.

An electrical scooter is used by our basemanager for transport in the area. For supplies the crew uses a hybrid tuktuk, developed by the non profit foundation. When cleaning the boat as little as possible fresh water and cleaning agents are used to limit pollution. The local crew, which is continuously being trained to further develop their sailing skills, is also being made aware of the importance of taking care of the environment.

Locally or Family-Owned Business

Sail Lanka Charter is a Sri Lankan company which originated from the non profit Building A Future foundation. 

The foundation was started after the tsunami hit the Sri Lankan coast in 2004 and has 3 main objectives: training and empowering the local youth, creating new sustainable waterbased leisure activities and  raising environmental awareness.
