Good morning Herring!

The birds and seals are growing fat on herring this week and we still have tickets to the annual herring festival on Sunday if you’d like to try some too! This year several restaurants are cooking up new dishes and they all sound scrumptious. If you’ve never tried or even heard of fried milt you have to come check out this buttery delicacy from chef Davey Jones. Tickets available here on eventbrite or possibly at the door of the Bay Model Sausalito if we don’t sell out. We are showing a brilliant film (two showings morning 11am and after lunch at 2pm) called Sonic Sea. And best of all lunch and music by the FISHWIVES are included in your ticket price. All proceeds benefit Sausalito Community Boating Center SCBC at Cass Gidley Marina. Hope to see you there Sunday!

Great gifts to reduce your waste and for the sailors in your life

With limited space on board we are careful to consume and accumulate only what we really need, and it’s always a struggle to reduce the waste we produce in our daily lives.  I’ve been slowly noticing what we throw away frequently and looking for alternatives.  According to the EPA statistics for the year 2013 in the U.S. “On average, we recycled and composted 1.51 pounds of our individual waste generation of 4.4 pounds per person per day.”  Aboard Carodon this year we recycled and composted about 75% of our quarter-pound per person per day of waste.  What does this look like? We now walk up the dock with approximately one gallon bucket of compost, a gallon to five gallons of recycling (depending on how many bottled drinks are consumed on charters) and only a half of a gallon bucket of landfill-bound waste every other day- for five people living aboard and a busy charter business that’s pretty good!

If you are looking for some gifts that help reduce our impact on the earth, here are a few of the products I like that help us REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and ROT:
