UNESCO's champion for ocean and freshwater conservation sets sail

Race for Water, one of the identical world-class trimaran sailboats competing in the trans-Atlantic Krys Oceans Race, is the ambassador boat of the Multi One Attitude Foundation, working with UNESCO to raise awareness about ocean pollution and key water sustainability issues. After a great start, Race for Water struck a cargo container floating at the surface of the water, seriously damaging the daggerboard of the boat. While it is now back in the race, the incident merits further reflection by both specialists and the general public about the growing amount of pollution in the ocean and its very real dangers.• More information http://www.unesco.org/new/en/natural-sciences/ioc-oceans/single-view-oceans/news/race_for_water_sets_sail_for_brest/
