Join us for a weekend of boating & help beat plastic pollution in Plymouth

Turning The Tide Plymouth

14 July - 15 July 2018

Join us for our Turning The Tide weekend - a weekend of boating and helping beat plastic pollution in Plymouth.

Whether you join us for one of our many on-water events which culminates in a mass, on-water litter pick on Sunday, or you want to visit to "have a go" at diving or see our pop-up boating festival, you'll find something for everyone.

But most importantly, we hope that you learn something from our Turning The Tide weekend. From day-to-day tips in reducing your plastic waste, to understanding damage that marine litter can cause to our marine wildlife, our experts have fountains of knowledge to help reduce your plastic waste. 

Saturday 14th July

Motorboat flotilla - We're planning to take a rally of motorboats head out of Plymouth Sound to see Blue Sharks, led by Underwater Photographer Peter Rowlands on MV Magic. Vastly experienced in this field, Pete will lead a flotilla of boats to a favourite spotting area where it’s possible to view these magnificent creatures in their natural environment. You'll learn about their behaviour, movement and feeding habits, as well as discovering other details about Devon & Cornwall's diverse sea life. You'll also see first hand how plastic pollution is affecting our local marine wildlife. Participating boats need to register with Yacht Haven Quay. There are also limited spaces available for non-boat owners. Call 01752 481190 to register

Sunday 15th July

Join Sound Diving for their Turning The Tide on plastic pollution day. See for yourself the result of a day of collecting discarded waste from our local waters, learn more about how we can lessen this, and earn yourself a ticket to their BBQ by getting involved!

On-water litter pick - Take part in a mass beach and river clean up around Plymouth's waters. If you've got a boat on your driveway, or your boat of a dive club, bring your boat to us for a free launch off - all we ask is that you return later in the end with a bin bag full of plastic waste! Your efforts will be rewarded with a complimentary BBQ. Sound Diving have been running a number of these clean up events during the season, raising awareness of the issues of cleaner seas and environmental responsibility, and it’s something that we at YHQ are really keen to support.
