Green Sailing vis a vis Over Yonder Cay

Situated in optimal climatic conditions to harness the power of wind and sun, Over Yonder Cay produces 96% of its power using renewable resources. The carbon credit of the entire renewable operation more than offsets the carbon footprint of both SY Marie & SY Tenacious, the family office yachts.  Additionally, during the winter months, a series of cold fronts produce more wind energy then is needed to run the island. This excess energy is converted, through Reverse Osmosis, into water and stored underground in large cisterns. This water is then treated and used across the island for drinking, irrigation and other uses.  Since the island's renewable energy system produces an abundance of drinking water, soon remineralized bottled water will be exported under the brand name WindWaterâ„¢.
