US Sailing and US Sailing Team premier sponsor Kilroy Realty is hosting a Sustainability Day for youth sailors in the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday, August 13, 2021 at Crissy Field.

US Sailing has invited youth sailors and summer camp participants representing the local Bay Area for a fun day focused on best practices in sustainability and protecting our oceans and waterways. The event will also feature a collection of the top Kiteboarders in the country who will be teaching the participating youth sailors about the sport.

Activities will include a marine debris clean-up and hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education activities involving sailing. The participating youth will engage in a simple machines scavenger hunt as part of US Sailing's Reach initiative for STEM education. They will also learn more about Kiteboarding and opportunities to participate in this exciting sport.

Featured Community Day Kiteboarders scheduled to participate includes Daniela Moroz (Lafayette, California), a four-time IKA Formula Kite Class World Champion and Two-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year, 2019 and 2016. Moroz will be joined by other top Kiteboarders Evan Heffernan, and Markus Edegran. These Kiteboard athletes will be competing at West Marine US Open Sailing - San Francisco, hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club, Treasure Island Sailing Center, and San Francisco Yacht Club on August 13-15, 2021.

Join US Sailing, Kilroy Realty and Surfrider Foundation for a community beach clean-up open to the public starting at 11am at Crissy Field.
