From the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water

ANNAPOLIS, Md., July 24, 2019 -- Each year, an estimated 18 billion pounds of plastic is dumped into our oceans from coastal regions. According to a study by the World Economic Forum, at the current rate of pollution, there will be more plastics than fish, by weight, in the ocean by 2050. To help reverse this trend, here are three tips from the nonprofit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water to help boaters reduce plastic waste and pollution while on the water.

Domino and me – A Great Loop Adventure
HIYC Member Zyg Durski 
Currently docked in Amsterdam, NY just west of Erie Canal Lock #11. Hope to be in Oswego, NY by Sunday staging to cross Lake Ontario to Kingston, ON Canada. On July 14th Domino and I sailed into New York City and anchored next to Lady Liberty. One of my top bucket list items checked off. All is well, she looks better than ever.
