Small-scale boating is a promising approach to boost sustainable cruising, yachting and sailing across the Black Sea region. As an alternative to traditional large-scale practices, smaller sized solutions bring greater socio-economic returns for the local community, including local heritage. They do so by preserving local nature and ecosystems, while allowing identifying new services and products that can capitalize local assets, being cultural or naturalistic of sorts.
The final report of the BLACK SEA CRUISE project includes key results and recommendations for the sustainable development of the small-scale cruising, yachting and sailing in the Black Sea.
The project was coordinated by the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS), in cooperation with local and regional partners, for a period of 24 months (Jan 2021 – Dec 2022). It was co-funded by the European Commission under Grant Contract ENI/2020/421-957, coordinated by the BSEC PERMIS.
