Practical Boat Owner - - News -

Boaters are be­ing en­cour­aged to join a new world­wide ocean clean-up cam­paign.

The coastal­ web­site al­lows sailors to find out about events near them, as well as log the lo­ca­tion and type of rub­bish they have col­lected them­selves.

The project, which has been set up by cruiser Steve Brown, al­ready has the back­ing of the Ocean Cruis­ing Club (OCC) and the Cruis­ing Club of Amer­ica.

“As a long-term cruis­ing sailor, I have seen what can be done by sailors who act to­gether to clean up beaches around their an­chor­age and so I have cre­ated a cam­paign to en­cour­age ALL cruis­ing sailors to carry out this clean up on an on­go­ing ba­sis,” ex­plained Brown.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested should con­tact Steve at ad­[email protected]­
