CSC Eco-Sailing Day 2018

On Singapore’s 53rd Birthday, Changi Sailing Club members stepped out of their comfort zones to do their part for Singapore and the Environment – participating in a large-scale clean-up of our waterways and coast line along the north-eastern rim of Singapore.

Armed with biodegradable trashbags, fishing nets and other interesting tools, sailors on 10 Keelboats, 3 Pacers and 1 Trimaran took part in a 2 hour morning clean-up of the Johor Straits. It was both heartening and sad to see the mountains of trash collected from just 2 hours of sailing – accumulating over 60kg of plastic pollution between CSC and Pulau Ketam.

Boats involved:

  1. Cicak
  2. SDF
  3. Southern Light
  4. Emmanuel II
  5. Notus
  6. Jong Dee
  7. Marsh Mellow
  8. Jong Dee
  9. Big Bad Wolf
  10. Summer Breeze
  11. Olive Oyl

On shore, there were sizzling hotdogs on the bbq for hungry sailors, as well as a myriad of eco-friendly products on sale at the Eco-Bazaar. CSC is very happy to support local eco-brands to raise awareness of the alternatives to plastic available in the market, and make small but consistent efforts to create a more sustainable eco-conscious environment for Members and visitors.

Vendors

  1. Bamboo Straw Girl
  2. Nature Rustic
  3. The Lala Lokal
  4. Coopita
  5. The Green Collective
  6. Oh Honey!

After lunch, further activities included a scavenger hunt-styled beach clean up, movie screening of “A Plastic Ocean” and a live screening of the NDP 2018 at the Ubin Lounge to wrap up a really productive day!

Thank you to all members, family and friends who dropped by to support this Event.

Together, we can make a difference 🙂
