The International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians (IYFR) together with the Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce (SBFCC) and Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) are supporting the International Coastal Cleanup Philippines and Recyclables Regatta 2015. This event is in line with the International Coastal Cleanup on September 19, 2015. The Recyclables Regatta is a race of watercrafts made from recycled materials (without restrictions on shapes and steering mechanism), paddled in a total of 240-meter point to point course along Subic Bay. Teams must use their creativity by collecting garbage items that can be recycled to create a human-powered floating vessel with no motors and working sails that can be rowed by two persons. Any debris left in the water by the participants should be retrieved in order to finish the race.
Winners received carved trophies fashioned out of coastal cleanup waste, alongside cash prizes and certificates, presented by IYFR International Commodore Jun Avecilla, Jesse Pascasio (Director for Strategic Planning and Communications from the National Coast Watch Council Secretariat), Hon. Ramon Lacbain (Vice Governor of Zambales), Mutya ng Olongapo Kresnha Gluindez and Bert Guevara (EVP for Philippine Alliance for Recycling and Materials Sustainability and President of Zero Waste Recycling Movement of the Philippines Foundation).
