About the team

Sustainability is at the core of all team operations to inspire action for long-lasting positive change for the ocean.

Driven by its vision of vibrant, healthy oceans and communities, supported and inspired by the sport of sailing, the 11th Hour Racing Team operates under four guiding principles:

Be leaders, advocating for ocean health, climate action, and sustainability with the industry, communities, and fan base. 

Develop innovative solutions to responsibly manage resources, apply circular economy principles to material needs, reduce water and climate footprints, and become water-neutral and climate positive.

Collaborate with partners to create sustainable solutions, minimizing the environmental footprint across spheres of influence, including going zero waste and implementing a ban on single-use plastics.

Leave a lasting legacy by inspiring others to make changes including a community outreach program, internships, and grant-giving.

#OceanHour

WHEN THE OCEAN WINS, WE ALL WIN

The ocean connects us all – from the oxygen we breathe to the food we eat to the stability of our climate we only thrive when our ocean thrives. But human impact, from the climate crisis to plastic pollution to the decline in biodiversity, has driven the planet to a critical moment in time. The clock is ticking. This is the #oceanhour.
