Today we did a cleanup at our home venue. We sail at the Washington Sailing Marina which is also open to the public. Unfortunately, our home venue is often treated poorly by the public and it feels great to give back and do what we can to make our venue better.
I always find it very fulfilling when we do our team marina cleanups. We usually spend around 12 hours a week at the marina sailing so it is a very important venue to us as a team. It is sad when we see other people making the marina messy and it is very gratifying to be able to do our part as a team to correct that. There is also a lot of interesting wildlife at the marina, especially the hawks that nest there, so it is important that our team continues to do our part in making it a cleaner place for them.
