The double Olympic sailing champion, Theresa Zabell, visited the students of the Monte Real Club de Yates Sailing School this morning in Baiona, to convey her passion for the sea and some lessons on the care and protection of the environment.

The athlete, one of the most successful sailors in Spain, has chaired the Ecomar Foundation for years, created with the aim of educating the youngest in sustainable practices through sport, with special emphasis on the care and protection of the sea.

This morning in Baiona, Zabell reminded the little ones of the importance of recognizing the different types of waste that exist in order to recycle them correctly, of protecting the coastline from the rubbish that comes from the sea, and of keeping the beaches clean from the waste that man himself generated, such as cans, plastics, butts or glass.

Some lessons that were not new for the students of the Monte Real Sailing School, who for years have participated in several of the educational initiatives promoted by the Ecomar Foundation, such as the Logbook, the collection and recycling of batteries or the conferences beach cleaning.

In this sense, Zabell congratulated the Baionese club for its commitment to the environment and encouraged students and directors to continue promoting measures to make society aware of the need to take care of the sea.

Before finishing his visit, Zabell gave Monte Real three Optimist candles that the Ecomar Foundation donated to the club for its sports activities.
