Clean Regatta: We have registered as a Clean Regatta with Sailors for the Sea.
- You can help by bringing and using refillable water bottles and beer & coffee cups, reef-safe sunscreen, non-toxic boat wash (or water-only), and reusable bags for regatta provisioning. Please dispose of waste in the proper receptacle (compost/landfill/recycle).
- Another way you can help our Clean Regatta effort is to help us reuse and upcycle old sails that you are not using. If you have sails that would be fine to use for day sailing/learning to sail a Thistle please consider bringing them to the Oyster Roast to donate to the Thistles Edward John has so kindly rehabbed to get more folks into a Thistle. If you have sails that are not useful anymore, you can support our Thistle Class/Sea Bags upcycling partnership by donating those sails at this regatta to be made into future trophies and keep the sails out of the landfill.
- These sails can be any type of white sail in any condition. Thistle sails, or sails from any other kinds of boat no matter how old are welcome.
