52 Super Series

Through a partnership with 11th Hour Racing, the 52 Super Series is working to integrate practices and processes that minimise the environmental impact of their events.  This highly successful international racing circuit draws the best sailors from all over the world.  With close competition and a wide audience, it is the perfect platform to raise awareness of the environmental issues affecting our ocean and showcase the impact major sailing events can have by adopting sustainable operations.

During the 2017 season, the 52 SUPER SERIES builds on experience and success to further move the needle in sustainable practices in their own operations as well as through the venues and communities where they race.
