Thank you Carl for organizing this evenings beach clean up and a big THANK YOU to everyone that joined. I know some of you were quietly drinking your beer, starting your bike to go home but with a couple of words "'the beach needs cleaning!"' ..you were there!! 😀

Apologies to some of the team to joined, I didn't managed to get photo's of you all working hard
