UPDATE FROM DAVE STANIFORTH

Memories of the 2018 UK sailing season are receding quickly. It was the best summer rally season of recent years with sunshine and steady winds.
It was great to be able to explore the South West coast in our Dabber Bob'n'Annie - you can read the articles in the DA News magazine from the button on the left. The Dabber has served us well for 5 seasons and is now on the market as we have acquired the bigger Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for 2019 and beyond. The winter will be spent refitting Kestrel, ready for exploring the North Wales coast, bays and estuaries. Any FBYC members visiting the UK would be most welcome to join me for a sail. The FBYC office has my contact details.
Our travels in 2019 will take us to Australia for a family wedding, so our return to Simon's Town to get away from the UK winter will wait till 2020.
Wishing all at FBYC fair and following winds in 2019.
Regards
Dave & Vicki Staniforth

Did you know…

Benefits of Recycling

  • Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators
  • Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals
  • Increases economic security by tapping a domestic source of materials
  • Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials
  • Saves energy
  • Supports manufacturing and conserves valuable resources
  • Helps create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries
Plastics

Of all the different materials we toss in the trash, plastics cause by far the biggest problem. They last a long time in the environment without breaking down—sometimes as much as 500 years. They're very light and they float, so plastic litter drifts across the oceans and washes up on our beaches, killing wildlife and scarring the shoreline. The only trouble is, plastics are relatively hard to recycle. There are many different kinds of plastic and they all have to be recycled in a different way. There's so much plastic about that waste plastic material doesn't have much value, so it's not always economic to collect. Plastic containers also tend to be large and, unless people squash them, quickly fill up recycling bins.

All told, plastics are a bit of an environmental nightmare—but that's all the more reason we should make an effort to recycle them! Different plastics can be recycled in different ways. Plastic drinks bottles are usually made from a type of clear plastic called PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and can be turned into such things as textileinsulation (for thermal jackets and sleeping bags). Milk bottles tend to be made from a thicker, opaque plastic called HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and can be recycled into more durable products like flower pots and plastic pipes.

Note plastic # 1 – #5 can be recycled, all others must be thrown in the general waste bins.

Let’s save the planet!
