Sustainability

To promote sustainability and to protect the island, we are asking that all the crews bring reusable water bottles for their crews to use. Please do not bring cases of single-use water bottles. Plan to bring a few gallons of water for refilling the reusable bottles and refill the gallons on a daily basis at the filtered water stations that will be set up at the 3 marinas around the salt pond.

Concerning the salt pond, there will be no bottom cleaning performed in the Salt Pond. Additionally, please eliminate any use of soaps and cleaning chemicals in the salt pond. Please use a water only wash down process. The Salt Pond is now home to a thriving oyster population so absolutely no discharge either.

The Salt Pond, or New Harbor and Old Harbor have had a no discharge status since 1993.  Please utilize the free pumpout boat service, the first of its kind on the East Coast.  New Harbor pumpout service is available by contacting them on Ch 73 between 7:30am and 5:00pm.  

This year there will be a scheduled lay day. In addition to the posted activities, we are looking to schedule a beach clean up. Please stay tuned for additional information. Event schedules will be displayed on TV monitors in the Tent.
