Antigua Sailing Week!

Screen Shot 2013-04-26 at 2.29.05 PMThis 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
  • Recycling
  • 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.
