Why do we do this?

The zer°emission project works to inspire sailors, race fans, our partners and race host cities to join us in our quest for cleaner seas. Through our sustainability program our partners can utilise sailing sports affinity and visibility in media to raise awareness of the marine pollution.

“There is trash floating everywhere”

A love of the sea is at the heart of what we do. Respecting it is fundamental in offshore racing.

 

Sailors live from and for the sea. The water we drink comes from the ocean, only filtered by the desalinating water maker.
We keep our trash bags sealed inside the boat and shower in the rain. Our vulnerability to the natural elements is total. That is why we go out there.

But one of the things we’re suffering the most from is not natural.

Rather, it's the opposite.

We’ve seen plastic bottles, styrofoam, plastic bags, Crocs, and balloons, pretty much everything including a garden table.
Before every start, we have to reverse, just for checking debris from our keel and rudders.
The pollution in our sea is pretty unreal and tragic.
