Talk & AGM: Clean Ocean Sailing with Alan Green

April 16 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm

With the help of the 112-year-old sailing boat ‘Annette’ and other smaller crafts, the Clean Ocean Sailing (COS) crew sail and paddle to remote, inaccessible places to clean up our Cornish coast. They collect plastic from the shores and then sort, record, reuse and recycle it, and they welcome volunteers! Alan, brother of the ‘Annette’ skipper Steve, has always had a keen interest in nature and the beautiful environment that we live in.

Fully aware of how this environment has been impinged upon by human activity, particularly litter and marine plastic, he picks it up wherever he can. This entertaining talk with the COS projects and where the plastic ends up, focusing on a recent trip to the Isles of Scilly.

The talk will be followed by our Annual General meeting to which all are welcome. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. This is a FREE event but donations to Looe Marine Conservation Group are welcome.
