Clean Sailors supported by Finsulate

We are excited that Finsulate stands behind the Clean Sailors mission!

With millions of tonnes of microplastics being added to our oceans every year from our antifoul paint, innovation and cleaner solutions across sailing and our marine industries are much needed in order for us to achieve cleaner, healthier waters.

Dr. Rik Breur, founder and director of Finsulate, has created a biocide free alternative to anti-foul paint with the aim of reducing the chemicals and microplastics that enter our waters each year from our boats and ships.

"We are super excited to have Finsulate standing with Clean Sailors - a team, a vision and an innovation as obsessed with cleaner waters as we are. Exciting, humbling and inspiring for us and the wider sailing and marine industries that better, healthier solutions are both possible and accessible." says Holly Manvell, Clean Sailors founder.
