COMMUNITY & PARTNERSHIPS

Doyle Sails is proud to be partners to a number of significant charities, foundations and companies that share the same philosophies for leadership, sustainability and education as we do. Working with a focus on environmental issues and supporting the sailors of tomorrow.

LIVE OCEAN

In 2019, Doyle Sails joined forces with Live Ocean, a marine conservation charity set up in collaboration with New Zealand sailors Peter Burling and Blair Tuke. Live Ocean has a focus on projects involving marine science, innovation and public education.

NEW ZEALAND SAILGP TEAM

New Zealand owned and operated, Doyle Sails is home to some of the best sailors and sailmakers in the world who constantly push boundaries to innovate and reimagine sailing. Doyle Sails will be the Official Sailmaker to the global league in a three year deal that also includes a partnership with Peter Burling and Blair Tuke’s New Zealand SailGP Team.

SAILGP

In 2020 Doyle Sails proudly partnered with SailGP donating both time and resources towards the event.

SailGP has a strong focus on Environmental practices backed by their ‘Race to the Future’ Policies. SailGP is the first climate positive sports and entertainment property going beyond a net zero carbon footprint in all business and event operations.

DOYLE NZ - TOITŪ ENVIROMARK GOLD

We are thrilled to announce that in May 2024, Doyle Sails New Zealand has successfully achieved the Toitū Enviromark Gold accreditation. This significant milestone not only validates our ongoing efforts to reduce our environmental footprint but also underlines our commitment to continuous improvement.

This achievement not only recognizes the efforts of Doyle Sails New Zealand but also reflects positively on the entire Doyle Sails Group, as the home of our flagship membrane, STRATIS.

SAILORS FOR THE SEA

As part of our responsibility to ensure our planet is being respected, we only choose to partner with those organisations, events, clubs and stakeholders who uphold our Environmental Values.

Doyle partners with many sailing clubs globally, helping the next generation to learn and experience the thrill of being out on the water. We encourage all our partners to work towards responsible environmental practices and policies, and prefer to work with partners who are upholding the values and principles of the Sailors for the Sea ‘Clean Regattas’ programme.

SAILING LA VAGABONDE

Performance Multihulls continue to gain more momentum, and with more performance (or ‘velocidade’ as Riley refers to it) comes better handling and style. At Doyle Sails, this is our forte, and we’re very proud to have partnered with Sailing La Vagabonde on their journey around the world while we all live vicariously through their sailing adventures they share with us.

ROYAL AKARANA YACHT CLUB

The significant partnership agreement includes Doyle Sails being recognised as the ‘Official Sailmaker of the RAYC'. The partnership will see more support from Doyle Sails directed into the RAYC Academy and Learn to Sail fleets while playing a significant part in continuing to develop Blue Water sailing and the RAYC’s wider programmes.

OCEAN CRUSADERS

Doyle Sails New Zealand has pledged to remove 10kg of waste for every sail sold through our partnership with Ocean Crusaders —a commitment we encourage our broader network to adopt. We believe that even small actions can lead to profound change over time, and we're dedicated to supporting our partners in shaping a more sustainable future.

SAILGP INSPIRE

“Doyle Sails has been working with the SailGP league since the inaugural season in 2019, and we we are proud to extend that to SailGP Inspire in 2021 and beyond. Our partnership brings together two entities who share similar philosophies on sustainability, supporting the next generation, and education. The SailGP Inspire partnership is something we are very proud of, to keep supporting the sailors who share the same passion for sailing as we do, is a great privilege”.

TREES THAT COUNT

Supporting and promoting the ocean’s health is key to our future sustainability, and we continuously improve our actions to ensure we do what we can to protect our environment. As part of this commitment, alongside other partnerships, Doyle Sails donates a New Zealand native tree for every sail delivered from New Zealand, both locally and internationally. The ocean is our playground, and planting native trees contribute to healthier waterways and oceans.

WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER TRUST

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter has been operating for over 50 years, helping to save the lives of New Zealander’s in the Auckland region. The helicopter operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

A Charitable Trust was formed in 1990, to provide and develop a highly efficient aeromedical service for the benefit of the community at large.

FRIENDS OF THE BUCKET

Doyle Sails is proud to be an offical partner of the St Barths Bucket Regatta for many years. A regatta that is proud to support many local and international charities and participate in Clean Regatta's - the worlds only sustainability certification for water based events.
