Sneak peak at the 2012 BVI spring trophies!

The BVI spring regatta will be doing yet another first for Clean Regattas at their 2012 regatta. They will take best practice #15, Recycled Trophies, to a new level with trophies made from used bottles!  The regatta is working hard to be certified at the gold level.

Judy Petz, Director of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, is especially proud: “This year the awards being given to the winners of first, second and third places have a special meaning to the regatta. The drink you were holding last year may be the award you hold this year. They are not only made from recycled glass from the past Spring Regattas, but they are also original creations made here in the British Virgin Island.”
