It is a big weekend for the planet — or at least our little slice of it. Today marks the Global Climate Strike and tomorrow is California Coastal Cleanup Day. Greta Thunberg’s sail across the Atlantic to the UN Climate Conference, and her testimony to Congress, has brought attention and renewed activism to the issue of climate change (we saw a sign that read “Make the World Greta Again”). You can join both events before you go off for a pleasant, wind-powered afternoon this weekend. We do miss our Friday beer can racing, but that doesn’t mean we have to miss sailing.
Both events encourage you to bring your refillable water bottle. For the Coastal Cleanup, this seems a little ironic, since Crystal Geyser is a major sponsor. Such is the corporate-sponsored state of our current environmental predicament.
We encourage you to find a beach cleanup site for Saturday morning before you hit the water in the afternoon. The forecast looks ideal after last weekend’s blustery Rolex Big Boat Series.
We’ll see you out there!
