Working with the government, the association raises awareness of the importance of sailing for sustainable development along the Caribbean coast. It collects, analyses and distributes information relating to the nautical industry, promoting and supporting the development of projects.

One industry observer notes: “The government of Colombia is now very involved in promoting nautical tourism development and is particularly active in international marketing.
