Vestas 11th Hour Racing
At all 12 stopovers during the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race, Vestas 11th Hour Racing engaged with a local organization to bring awareness to their mission and educate students on global and regional ocean health issues.
Alongside this outreach, 11th Hour Racing provided a grant to empower the organization to further its mission and leave a lasting legacy for the Vestas 11th Hour Racing team as they race around the globe.
11th Hour Racing is committed to advancing innovative projects that improve the health of our ocean and address the dynamic environmental challenges facing the sailing and marine communities. These grants were awarded to nonprofit organizations that align with 11th Hour Racing’s programmatic strategy and focus on environmental issues specific to each stopover’s local ocean restoration needs.
