THE RACE

“Ocean racing is about pushing human and technological boundaries in a race to win, but there is a much more important race at stake: a race to save the oceans. We have technologies that can make significant contributions to reducing emissions, but early demonstration and adoption is vital to meet climate change targets and address the health of our oceans before it is too late.”

Phil Sharp, Team Principle and Skipper
