Things to take note:

  • #BYOB (Bring your own bags!). Bring Your Own Beer also can. Jokes aside – to encourage less waste, please do not buy trash bags just for this activity!
  • Tongs and Gloves – as there may be unidentified sharp objects, please use appropriate PPE.
  • All communications will be on VHF Channel 77.
  • Ensure working engine and AIS onboard.
  • If applicable, apply for MPA Cruising Permit.
  • If you wish to take part in the clean-up but not stay overnight, you may depart early on 15th May (8am) and join the fleet.

CSC Beach Clean-up (9am-10am)

If you wish to take part in the clean-up but do not have a keelboat/trimaran to participate, we are also organizing a mini beach clean-up along our sailing club’s immediate beachfront. This takes place from 9am-10am. The people to look for are Coach Liam & Angela. They will be leading their youth sailors to conduct a quick sweep of the beach before commencing the usual optimist programmes at 10am.

Trash Disposal

A big green bin will be place near the entrance of the Jetty. All trash collected from both clean-up activities may be placed in this bin.
