Known as one of the toughest endurance races on earth, only 60 people (22 teams) have ever completed the row between mainland USA and Hawaii. To put this in perspective, to date, over 4000 people have climbed Mt Everest, 1604 have wintered at the South Pole and 566 people have been to space.
This campaign is about so much more than rowing an ocean, we’re here to build a network of change-makers to create a positive impact for people and planet.
Together, as a community, we want to bring about change in daily behaviours and habits, however small, that collectively preserves our home – the world – for future generations.
We are aiming to raise £60,000 for our charity The Seabin Project and would appreciate any donations made towards this incredible organisation.
The Seabin Project’s purpose is to provide practical and tangible solutions to reduce plastic found in the world’s ocean. Most renowned for their Seabins which collect waste from marina ports, the organization also takes part in preventative activities including community activation, education programs, data collection and scientific research. Ultimately, they aim to promote a world where there isn’t a need for Seabins at all.
Marinas, ports and yacht clubs are the perfect place to start helping clean up the oceans. With no huge open ocean swells or storms inside marinas, these relatively controlled environments provide the perfect location for their “rubbish bins”. Our aim is to raise £60k for The Seabin Project, to set up new Seabins in chosen ports as well as support the organisation’s education and research programs. To give this perspective, £800 would support one Seabin to filter 2,363kg of debris from 262 million litres of water – the equivalent of 145 Olympic sized swimming pools!
