US Sailing Team and Kilroy Realty to Host Crissy Field Beach Cleanup
US Sailing and US Sailing Team premier sponsor Kilroy Realty are hosting a Sustainability Day for youth sailors in the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday, August 13, 2021, at Crissy Field.
US Sailing has invited youth sailors and summer camp participants representing the Bay Area for a fun day focused on best practices in sustainability and protecting our oceans and waterways. The event will also feature a collection of the top kiteboarders in the country, who will be teaching the participating youth sailors about the sport.
Activities will include marine debris cleanup and hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education activities involving sailing. The participating youth will engage in a simple-machines scavenger hunt as part of US Sailing’s Reach initiative for STEM education. They will also learn more about kiteboarding and opportunities to participate in this exciting sport.
Featured Community Day kiteboarders scheduled to participate include Daniela Moroz (Lafayette, California), a four-time IKA Formula Kite Class World Champion and two-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year (2019 and 2016). Moroz will be joined by other top kiteboarders Evan Heffernan and Markus Edegran. These athletes will be competing in West Marine US Open Sailing – San Francisco, hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club, Treasure Island Sailing Center, and San Francisco Yacht Club on August 13-15, 2021.
The US Sailing, Kilroy Realty and Surfrider Foundation community beach cleanup is open to the public starting at 11 a.m. on Friday, August 13, at Crissy Field.
