The Sebastian Inlet Sail & Power Squadron performed their quarterly cleanup on Thursday of their adopted Spoil Islands, known as #12, #13, and #14.

“There was little debris to pick up. This means that our citizens are being very conscientious and taking their trash with them when they leave,” the group said in a statement.

About 20 pounds of trash was collected from all three islands.

Since November 2003, the Sebastian Inlet Sail & Power Squadron is the local unit of the world’s largest non-profit boating organization, the United States Power Squadron.

They currently provide:

  • Safe boating courses to the community
  • Discounted boating education to the youth of our area through our grant program
  • Courtesy Vessel Exams through our Vessel Safety Check Program
  • Assist NOAA with the correction of charts through our Cooperative Charting Program.

For more information, call them at (435) 459-1451 or visit their website.
