To save Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Robert "Bobby" Joseph is the new commodore of the Manila Yacht Club for its 91st year and his mission during his two-year term is to make Manila Bay clean again. This he vows to tackle-after sailing with his wife Ida and his friends along the black water with plastic bags floating on Manila Bay. Joseph has been a member of the Manila Yacht Club for 20 years and being its newly elected commodore is an opportunity for him to campaign for his advocacy for the environment. His formal turnover was last Nov. 17 during the “Opening Day Ceremonies and Sail Pass for 2018-2019” with Senate President Vicente Sotto III as the guest of honor.
