Racing with Purpose

Building upon the legacy of the last edition of the Race, our innovative programme, ‘Racing with Purpose’, will act as a catalyst for positive change to help restore ocean health.

Through this commitment to put sustainability at its heart, The Ocean Race has unveiled a roadmap to inspire action and create tangible outcomes.

The formation of a visionary partnership with 11th Hour Racing will see us collectively work on a broad range of initiatives for cleaner and healthier seas.

The unique collaboration, the largest partnership of its kind in sport, continues the momentum built during the past edition of the race of the multi-award winning sustainability programme of which 11th Hour Racing was the Founding Principal Partner.

As part of the cutting-edge initiative, the partners have committed to a comprehensive action plan.  

This includes a series of legacy-building Ocean Race Summits and Innovation Workshops; work with experts and teams to explore the use of state of the art renewable energy systems on board the IMOCA 60 and VO65 classes; an immersive, multi-lingual, curriculum-based, schools learning programme.

We will also continue the powerful science program developed during the last Ocean Race and inspire millions of Race Village visitors with the possibility of a sustainable world through interactive experiences at each stopover.

More ‘Racing with Purpose’ announcements will be revealed in the near future.
