With that humble refillable water bottle, 11th Hour Racing has made great strides and reached many milestones. We focused 2015 on building collaborative and strategic partnerships within the sailing communities by funding projects that promote change for the health of the marine environments.
Our portfolio of Grantees continues to grow, with nine new partners; 11th Hour Racing funds innovative efforts advancing clean technologies, fostering environmental stewardship, promoting youth education and addressing ocean pollution.
We’ve seen tremendous progress in the field of sustainable events, teams, fan engagement, reporting and environmental responsibility through our Sponsorships Program, including impactful efforts from the 52 Super Series, the Atlantic Cup, and the International Moth US Class. Smaller but poignant sponsorships have included the Vineyard Cup and newportFILM, while another top-tier sponsorship is in the pipeline for 2016 and beyond.
As we approach the end of the year, we wish to thank our 11th Hour Racing Ambassadors for their continued support and participation. Their volunteer role is an important element to the success of our program and is fundamental in engaging sports fans around the world towards a more sustainable future.
