1st Port Natal Sea Scouts take to the water in their tender cleaning the harbour under the direction of Troop Leader Koko
Following the recent very welcome heavy rains the Bay was once again flooded with debris and pollution which flows in from the CBD through the 52 drainage points located around the port. Once again our next door neighbours and adopted youth, the 1st Port Natal Sea Scouts, mounted a cleanup operation on Saturday afternoon removing all the plastic, polystyrene and a large amount of the alien water hyacinth washed down the rivers which accumulated in the marina immediately outside the Clubhouse. We are very grateful to the young Sea Scouts for their sterling efforts in tackling the pollution. After the heavy work cleaning up the Sea Scouts returned to the Clubhouse where they cooled down with a dip in the pool and enjoyed some cold soft drinks and lunch sponsored by the Club. On Sunday afternoon the enthusiastic youngsters returned to the Club to enjoy some sailing and participate in the Junior Sailing Program under the direction of Jennifer Weyer.
