Our sights are set on the next edition of The Ocean Race 2021-2022 with Charlie Enright and Mark Towill, Co-Founders of 1 Degree. We will use our sport of sailing as a global platform to inspire positive action among sailing and coastal communities and sports fans around the world to create long-lasting change for ocean health.

The Ocean Race

The ultimate team challenge in ocean racing, The Ocean Race (formerly Volvo Ocean Race) first debuted in 1973 as the Whitbread Round-the-World Race. It’s a 9-month, 45,000-mile sprint across the world’s oceans. Mark Towill and Charlie Enright are two-time participants, gunning for a third start in Alicante, Spain in the Fall of 2021.

Our Title Sponsor

Since 2010 11th Hour Racing has been working within the sailing community and maritime industries to advance solutions and practices that protect and restore ocean health. They believe in harnessing the power of sport to promote collaborative and systemic change -- one degree at a time -- and so do we!

Our Boat

Rebranded as 11th Hour Racing in summer 2019, the IMOCA 60 class boat (formerly Hugo Boss) was launched in 2015 as one of the most technologically-advanced racing yachts ever built, with hydrofoils to lift the hull out of the water and reduce drag. It was the runner-up in the 2016 Vendee Globe.
