GS4C, acronym for “Go Sailing, for a Change”, offers end users and manufacturers a complete and integrated solution based on sustainable and innovative technologies including end of life Cradle to Cradle recycling strategies. Specifically, GS4C works on the manufacturing value chain to guarantee Zero-Landfill solutions through a network of industrial partners covering all the production phases. GS4C choice is to start from the recreational and racing boating sector to later expand into other markets, building and showcasing sailing boats entirely sustainable and recyclable. This ground breaking approach could be the initial milestone for a revolution in the composite industry. Projects will be carried in collaboration with some of the main players of the industry to maximize the impact on both traditional and new media. The main aim is to increase the demand for sustainable products by proving that sustainability is not in contrast with high end performances. The first prototype is a 6.5m sail racing sandwich composite prototype made in bio based epoxy resin reinforced with aerospace grade sustainable and recyclable mineral fiber.
