11th Hour Racing has announced a Request for Proposals for projects that improve the health of our waters and address the dynamic challenges facing the sailing and marine communities. 11th Hour Racing’s vision is for healthy, vibrant coastal communities that value and sustainably manage marine resources.

  • Support and promote solutions that reduce ocean pollution;
  • Advance clean technologies and best practices that reduce the environmental impact of the sailing industry and maritime communities; and
  • Educate and foster ocean stewardship amongst sailing and coastal communities.

Strong consideration will be given to organizations or individuals that leverage collaborations, can demonstrate outcomes in a one-year timeframe, and share success broadly.
