Debris removed from harbor


Kevin Mabley of Fairfield and his son, TK, helped to clean up Southport Harbor from a CSF club kayak.

Joining the town wide Fairfield 375th Anniversary Day of Service Program, Community Sailing of Fairfield (CSF) members recently removed nearly a dozen bags of debris from Southport Harbor.

Walking the borders and using club kayaks to scour the Southport harbor shoreline for trash, club member volunteers enjoyed beautiful weather, had fun and left the harbor in better shape than before.

“Most would agree that Southport Harbor is one of the gems of the Connecticut shoreline,” said Don Hyman of Fairfield, a CSF volunteer organizer. “We love being able to use it for our sail boats and kayaks as a gateway to the Long Island Sound. Today was an opportunity to give  back for that privilege in concert with the Fairfield 375th Anniversary Day of Service effort.

“Fortunately, the harbor was pretty tidy to begin with but we left it in better shape than before we started picking up plastic bottles and other trash,” Hyman said.

CSF is a sailing and kayaking boat sharing cooperative providing affordable access to the Long Island Sound. For more information, visit
