Love for the ocean and an unwavering commitment to taking care of our environment are two reasons why sustainability is one of DOSC’s core values. We continue to extend our efforts every year to preserve and protect Dubai’s marine ecosystem, keep our oceans clean, and work towards building a sustainable future for all.

Join us, as we strive to make the world a better place!

The club has implemented a range of energy efficiency initiatives including energy efficient light bulbs, timers for hot water and (where possible) various appliances, and regular servicing of our hot water system.

  • We have installed a filtered drinking water refill station to reduce the reliance on bottled water by club members.
  • Our showers and toilet cisterns have water saving devices.
  • The club has tank water for our wash down hoses.

  • Old sails collected from members are upcycled into Unique handmade bags ♻️
