Safe & Green – Memorial Day Weekend!

The crew here at Sailors for the Sea is very excited for Memorial Day Weekend – and like many people in the country excited to be near the water and aboard a boat! This weekend our staff will be attending two exciting Clean Regattas, The Atlantic Cup and Figawi Race Weekend! At both events race organizers have used strong preparation to make their event follow our Clean Regatta Best Practices.

Many of these Best Practices can be applied to anyone’s weekend adventures – so here are a few tips for boating clean this weekend!

 Pump_out-04Overboard Discharges: Don’t discharge untreated sewage or blackwater in harbor (it’s gross) and very bad for your harbor – Find a list of pumpout stations here.

 

Non_toxic_cleaning-04Green Cleaning Products: More often than not, when you clean your boat the suds get washed off into the water. Learn more about Green Cleaning Products that can be bought or made for your boat.

 

water_bottle-04Reusable Water Bottles: Eliminate the use of single-use, disposable water bottles in your home and on your boat by switching to reusable water bottles. It make’s clean up at the end of the day so much easier!

For more ideas read our Clean Boating Resources.  

We wish everyone a safe & green Memorial Day Weekend!
