“The ocean provides the basis for all life on earth. Every second breath we take comes from the ocean. The ocean covers three quarters of the earth’s surface and plays a vital role in slowing down climate change, absorbing approximately 30 % of all man-made CO2 in the atmosphere and nearly all the excess heat in the atmosphere.
As a professional sailing team that has been competing in races all over the world for over 15 years, we witness practically on a daily basis the enormous impact of climate change.
Our main aim is to compete in the toughest races at the very highest level, while also using the platform our sport gives us to inspire action and change through outreach, raising awareness and highlighting solutions to climate change.”
"Our mission is to combine sailing, science and education to bring the climate crisis to the attention of the world. We aim to use the platform that ocean sailing gives us, where we witness at first hand the impact of man on this fragile environment, and to use these narratives to inspire change around the world.”
