Ambassador Program

We work closely with our ambassadors to drive change and provide funding for ocean restoration projects. These collaborations empower our ambassadors to act as changemakers in their communities and use their influence to rally fans and peers. From podcasts to community composting to oyster shell recycling, our ambassadors collaborate on their projects of choice from conceptualization to delivery.

Meet our ambassadors

11th Hour Racing’s ambassadors are ocean-loving professional athletes and creators. These high-profile individuals adopt sustainable practices in their work, daily lives and sporting events to inspire people to act #fortheocean.
