No Discharge

Research local pump-out boats and have them come to your regatta.

If you know a local pump-out spot, let your participants know. Make sure you give a friendly reminder to all participants that this type of behavior is not tolerated – it’s illegal and it’s irresponsible.

To fulfill this Best Practice do at least one of the following:

  • Remind all participants in Notice of Race (NOR) or skippers’ meeting that sewage discharge is illegal.
  • Coordinate to make sure that affordable or free pump-out services are available for all boats.
  • Require and provide dye tablets for all participant holding tanks.
