The International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians (IYFR) is a community of Rotarians (Mariners) who combine an acceptance of the principles of Rotary with a love of boats and the sea, rivers and inland waters, and use the shared interest of yachting and seamanship as an opportunity to encourage and foster the objectives of Rotary.
Mariner objectives are:
To advance international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideals of service.
To promote Rotary fellowship through cruising, yachting, racing, sailing, kayaking and other activities involving boats and boating.
To promote high standards of seamanship and abide by recognized yachting customs and etiquette on the water.
To support Rotary service projects and opportunities, on and off the water.
