Race’s Champions for the Sea Programme in cooperation with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals Programme.
As a part of the cooperation with the United Nations, the Ocean Race is not only involved in campaigns on plastic pollution of the oceans in schools and intensive educational work, but also contributes to research into the situation of the world's oceans. In the Ocean Race, sailors become scientists and boats become laboratories in which ocean water samples are collected to contribute to gaining important new scientific knowledge about the state of the oceans.
This groundbreaking programme combines top-class sailing with unprecedented data collection, representing a combination of innovation, sport and science.
Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
Along the lines of the motto Teamwork Makes The Dream Work, we are all pulling the same rope to reach our big goal, the Ocean Race 2021-22. It’s high time that we Austrians are a winning nation not only in inshore sailing. We finally want to prove our skills offshore as well.
