This weekend kicks off Antigua Sailing Week! This year race organizers have teamed up with a local organization, The Environmental Awareness Group of Antigua & Barbuda to help them run Clean Regattas. The event organizers are aiming for Bronze Level Clean Regatta certification by implementing 6 of our Clean Regattas Best Practices. This includes:
- Water Bottle Reduction
- Trash Free Regatta
- No Discharge of sewage
- Encouraging use of Alternative Fuels
- Reducing Bottom cleaning to reduce bottom paint leeching
Race organizers have also done an excellent job encouraging those racing to join the cause. To learn more, click here.
