Mystic Seaport presented its 2017 “America and the Sea Award” to Sailors for the Sea and David Rockefeller Jr. at a gala held in New York City.
The “America and the Sea Award” recognizes an individual or organization whose contributions to the history, arts, business, or sciences of the sea best exemplify the American spirit and character. Presented annually by Mystic Seaport, the award honors and celebrates those who embrace the scholarship, exploration, adventure, aesthetics, competition, and freedom that the sea inspires.
Sailors for the Sea, which was co-founded by Rockefeller, works to engage the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans. Through its Clean Regattas and Ocean Watch programs as well as its Green Boating Guide, the organization successfully motivates boaters to become environmental stewards.
