Join Planet Patrol and Southampton International Boat Show to clean up our rivers with a paddleboarding litter pick. Planet Patrol is one of the key official causes that Southampton International Boat Show is supporting this year and together we share a passion for everything in, on and around the water. The show is a celebration of yachting and watersports and this paddle boarding event reflects synergies whilst supporting the environment.
Never paddleboarded before? No problem! You’ll be shown all the basics before you go on the water by a qualified instructor and all equipment is provided. All you need to do is turn up ready to get stuck in.
Our golden rule is that you record everything you collect in the Planet Patrol app - so download this before the litter pick. We don't want to litter pick forever, so it's important to record what we find by TYPE and BRAND so we can solve this problem at the source and hold the big polluters accountable.
All paddlers must be aged 16 or over.
You must download the Planet Patrol app (available in the App Store / Google Play) ahead of the clean up.
Wear loose light clothing (gym wear is fine). No denim.
Wear suitable footwear such as trainers or non-slip shoes.
Please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your start time.*
All our events are single use plastic free so we ask that you bring water in a reusable bottle - it's thirsty work.
We will also send you an email in advance of the day to reconfirm details.
CLEAN UP STRUCTURE
On arrival you will be provided with equipment and your instructor will give a safety briefing and paddleboarding tutorial.
Once on the water, get paddling and pick any litter you spot.
Back on land, keep hold of your litter bucket and empty out everything you've collected then photograph and record what you've found in the Planet Patrol app.
*Latecomers will not be permitted to take part in activity on the water if they have not arrived in time to be fitted with equipment and receive a safety briefing.
Please note that all Planet Patrol clean ups follow the latest social distancing guidelines and you must complete the digital consent form that is emailed to you after you have signed up.
