I saw this post this morning and it occurred to me how many Happy Birthday balloons I have seen out at sea. There is a movement among race organizers to create “green” regattas, which is a step in the right direction. If we all have consideration for what we throw over board it certainly can’t hurt. Nothing ruins a good picture faster that a floating water bottle. Be personally responsible, get involved Sailors for the Sea, and spread the word. Enjoy the video courtesy of the VOR.
