Environment Policy

Hastings & St Leonards Sailing club is committed to reducing it’s impact on the environment by cutting out single use plastics.

Ours is a maritime sport and therefore the risk of plastic finding its way into the sea is high. This is why the club no longer supplies water in plastic bottles and we encourage all sailors to not drink from disposable plastic bottles while sailing. Additionally if you spot any seaborne plastic while sailing please try and fish it out. The patrol boat crew will happily take it ashore and dispose of it appropriately for you.
Metal club-branded drink bottles are available from the clubhouse.
The club also has a scrap metal recycling scheme. Any If you have any old spars, boat-fixtures, trolleys or other metal items look out for the metal recycling area. This is normally located near the boathouse doors during the pre-season work parties.
