Join us for Coastal Cleanup Day

It's not too early to start thinking about it!

Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, September 21st

Coastal Cleanup Day is a day to clean up our shores – a day to get rid of garbage, plastics, and other trash polluting and disfiguring our shores.

Coastal Cleanup is always on the third Saturday of September. It's not just an event at Ballena Bay. It's not just an event in California. It's not just an event in the USA – it's a world-wide event! So join fellow sailors and people who just love the sea and its shore from all around the world and help clean it up!

Coastal Cleanup at Ballena Bay will take place from 9AM to noon. A sign-in table will be set up in the “E” parking lot where participants will be assigned to a team (pre-formed teams from scouts or other organizations are encouraged) and directed to a specific area of the shoreline for them to help clean.

At the end of cleanup (typically around 11:30) “takes” will be judged and prizes awarded in various categories (most cigarette butts, heaviest object, most unusual item, etc).

So please mark the day on your calendar and join us in making Ballena Bay a clean, beautiful place where folks can enjoy our section of San Francisco Bay!

Visit our website (http://bbyc.org) for other events that you maybe interested in joining as well.

What is a Knarr (Knarrer, or is it Knarren plural)? Bermuda rigged, long keeled sailing yachts designed in 1943 by Norwegian Erling Kristofersen. They are 30' long with a beam of 6', racing with a crew of four. Sails only, no motor on the boats. There will be up to 8 boats racing this year, and they have a long racing tradition, mostly out of the Saint Francis Yacht Club on the Bay. BBYC is thrilled to host the Regatta, so come help cheer them on and support their racing tradition!

Stop in Friday night for one of our regular Griller Series nights to welcome the Regatta as they bring their boats into position for the Saturday race and come back Saturday to see it all happen! You are invited to pre-purchase a great Saturday dinner to hang with the racers as they share the excitement of the race and watch their videos--we have a great chef team coordinating this event--Virginia Gleason, Gina Secchi, and Kathryn Rees.
