Going Green

Going Green

As sailors we are close to the environment and we respect Mother Nature because we know how fragile the Chesapeake Bay is. We will make an effort to be more sustainable by recycling and using less pre-packaged foods and beverages. Therefore please bring your own reusable water bottle you to class. On one powerboat per class, we will have water coolers so you can refill your water bottle on the water. It is also imperative that you have a piece of rope tied to your water bottle. That way, in the event of a capsize, your water bottle does not end up in the Chesapeake Bay. If you do not have a piece of rope at home, we have plenty here at the yacht club!

As an effort to use less paper, our registration is done online now. We have a user friendly registration system set up through our website that will even allow you to use your member number.

Our goal is to make our sailors aware of their waste management and to guide them to make greener choices. We already know you are taking the first step in going green, because you are choosing sailing over power boating!
