Sustainable boating: Download The Green Blue’s digital guides for free
Four new digital green guides for iPad and iPhone have been launched by the RYA and it is hoped the UK boating community will use these to minimise their impact on the environment.
Launched on January 12th- RYA Digital Day - at the London Boat Show, the products have been developed by The Green Blue, which is the joint environment project of the RYA and the BMF.
The guides contain a range of top tips for recreational boaters on how to minimise the impact of boating on the environment, including choosing the right type of antifoul, using environmentally friendly cleaners on board or maximising outboard efficiency to reduce emissions and save money.
The Green Guide to Coastal Boating, The Green Guide to Inland Boating, The Green Guide for Charter Companies and The Green Guide to Outboard Efficiency have all been available from The Green Blue in hard copy but have now been digitised and added to the suite of RYA e-books.
Jane Swan, The Green Blue Project Manager, said: “It makes perfect sense for The Green Blue to offer more of its leaflets and guides in digital format in order to reduce the volume of printed material we distribute as well as make our advice available to generations of boaters who prefer to use their electronic devices to keep up to date.”
How to get hold of the free digital green guides:
To access the e-books, download the free ‘RYA Books’ app from iTunes and touch the ‘Catalogues & Brochures’ to find the publication.
