Best Management Practices for BMPs - Environmental


Sailing is an evironmentally friendly sport. Because of this we are often viewed to maintain a higher standard than other organizations.

  • While the WYC Crane is not condusive to the speading of invasive species, we should still practice educational signage and monitoring as able to ensure lakewide BMP's are practiced.

  • As a marina, club, and community leader we should emphasis policies that reduce waste and pollution via petrolum fuels or storm water run-off.

  • Because we are a largely volunteer organization, everyone at the club should do their part to reduce waste, litter, polution, and use of toxic or non lake friendly chemicals or soaps.
