The Honolulu Advertizer ran a story on September 29, 2006 on Eco-sailing and the activities of GSA Hawaii.
Team Captain, Andy Bates describes the reaction of fellow sailors and spectors to the Ecoflag while he and fellow Hawaiian sailors, Harold von Sydows, Steven Grimes and Ed Murphy competed in the International 14 World Championships in Long Beach, California.
With the support of local sponsor Horizon Lines, who also sponsored the recent Pacific Rim Championships, GSA Hawaii has been spreading environmental awareness through Hawaii’s sailing community.
According to Bates, the message is readily appreciated by sailors, who he says are "more in touch with the wind, the water and the environment"
