The Clean Marine Program is a partnership of private marina owners, government marina operators, boatyards and yacht clubs. The Clean Marine Program was developed to ensure clean facilities exist in our boating communities and protect our waterways from pollution.
It is the objective of the Clean Marine Program that all California marinas, boatyards and yacht clubs become a Certified Clean facility. We are pleased to report that we do have several Certified Clean Marine facilities from surrounding states that have gone thru the certification process and find true value in doing so.
It is our goal to assist marinas, boatyards and yacht clubs navigate the certification process by providing one on one informative pre certification instruction when requested.
We have updated the Clean Marine Certification Score Sheets that were designed to be the roadmap and simplify the process. You can locate these on the recently updated Clean Marine website.
The Clean Marine Board of Directors and I with your participation look forward to a very successful year for the Clean Marine Program.

In 2004, Anthony heard that a Clean Marine California Program was in the works and he quickly came on board. Anthony was excited to get involved with the program because it's a program that is aimed at protecting the marine environment from a variety of pollution sources associated with boating and marina operations, this is the right thing to do, he said.
Anthony has extensive experience in the Clean Marine California Program has focused on providing assistance and outreach to other Marinas to develop and implement clean marine practices. Anthony has mentored over 10 Marinas into compliance with the Clean Marine California Program standards.
Under the Clean Marine California Program marinas must be in full compliance with environmental regulations, implement a comprehensive list of best management practices and pass a site visit inspection. Anthony is an inspector for the Clean Marine California Program and has inspected over 9 Marinas.
Somehow Anthony finds time for a few hobbies - cooking, barbequing, restoring vintage vehicles and off road riding.
Thank you Anthony for your professionalism, dependability and teamwork. Congratulations from everyone at California Yacht Marina!

Tim Fontaine - Director
Tim is the current Harbor Master at Village West Marina and Resort in Stockton, CA. Located on the Delta, Village West is home to 680 berths, 6 commercial tenants, vacation rentals, and a small RV park. Tim has helped Village West Marina and Resort establish new policies and procedures as the marina has grown since 2015, apply for different permits through different agencies, rebuild, and rebrand the marina.
Tim grew up boating on the Delta, spending countless summer hours with his family skiing, and wakeboarding. Tim bought his first pwc at 16; sometimes a wet suit was required, but that pwc was used 12 months out of the year. These early memories prompted a passion for the marine industry and the preservation of the bodies of water that allow for these activities. Programs like the Clean Marine program will allow for future generations to partake in the different recreational boating activities we all love. .
