Australia's 2019 Festival of Sails joins an international campaign to reduce single-use plastics

Victorian Festival of Sails regatta, in partnership with Barwon Water, registered with the Sailors for the Sea program and provided 3500 free reusable drink bottles to competitors and volunteers during the event. In addition, a water refill station was installed inside the Royal Geelong Yacht Club to encourage people to use their own water bottles. The regatta was held on the 28th of January 2019.
