11th Hour Racing Team’s “Mālama”, the first-ever foiling IMOCA 60 designed specifically for The Ocean Race 2022-23 is coming to CBC’s 2022 Renaissance Regatta!

The 11th Hour Racing Team is led by Mark Towill (USA) and skippered by Charlie Enright (USA). Supported by title sponsor 11th Hour Racing, the team’s mission is to win The Ocean Race 2022-23 with sustainability at the core of all operations, inspiring positive action among sailing and coastal communities and global sports fans to create long-lasting change for ocean health.

In the spirit of “thriving vs. surviving”, this world-class CBC event is a reward for the Covid challenges we’ve all faced. Much more than a race, this fundraiser fosters a lifetime of youth learning. Thanks to our supporters, CBC nurtures a sense of community in which the diversity of the urban environment is respected and encouraged. We need your help!

“We hope to inspire many people on this journey to lessen our collective impact on the environment by making small adjustments in our lives – because, with each day, we are racing together against time. This is the Ocean Hour.” 
– Mark Towill, 11th Hour Racing Team

“The ocean connects us all, from giving us the very basic necessities for life to regulating the global climate, to providing an avenue for cultures to interact. We only thrive if our ocean thrives – this will be our guiding mantra at the forefront of our decision-making process.” 
– Charlie Enright, 11th Hour Racing Tea
