Jane Swan takes over as Sarah Brown becomes regional advisor

A new head of the RYA/BMF environmental awareness project, Green Blue, has been appointed to begin on 1 January.

Current Project Manager, Sarah Brown, is relocating to Scotland from Hamble to take up the post of Regional Advisor after four years in charge of the Green Blue.

A guarantee of a further two years’ funding for the Green Blue from Scottish Natural Heritage will enable the team to continue rolling out its environmental awareness campaign at marinas and clubs.

Sarah will also continue working on the Green Blue database and keeping a watching rief on environmental issues relating to boating in Wales and Northern Ireland.

Jane Swan who is currently Partnerships Officer and has been acting project manager during Sarah’s sabbatical earlier this year is to take over the head role full time.
