Yacht club takes environmental pledge

Pequot Yacht Club is making efforts to be a responsible steward of the natural environment during its upcoming annual sailboat racing event for young sailors, the 58th Pequot Invitational. The club, in Fairfield's Southport area, has taken the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas Pledge for Silver level Clean Regattas certification of the competition, set for Sunday, July 29, through Tuesday, July 31, according to a news release. The club's efforts will include giving regatta participants water in stainless steel bottles to replace use of plastic on the water.
The credential provides independent, third-party verification that a yacht club, sailing program or regatta is environmentally responsible and doing its utmost to protect and restore the waters upon which people sail.
