Urban Drinking Water Challenge premium
“Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.” As English Poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, states in his poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner first published in 1798. And that statement has never been so true. We take for granted the fresh water that flows from our taps. We then hear the scare stories…

Home Sweet Home premium
It is hard to believe that just under a month ago the Volvo Ocean Race machine shut up shop after the finish in The Hague and we all said goodbye to one another. For many of us, we hope it will be au revoir rather than goodbye and that we will be reunited in the…

Saying farewell to the Volvo Ocean Race….for now premium
Doesn’t it go in the blink of an eye? The past 12 months certainly have and the journey I have been on with the entire Turn the Tide on Plastic team has been incredible. At times, the challenges we have faced have seemed insurmountable, but we have been tenacious and reached the climax of the…

Review of Leg 10 – Cardiff to Gothenburg premium
Our departure from Cardiff was frighteningly light. We had six hours of tide with us and the pressure was on to clear the Bristol Channel before it turned. We were blocked out of the start line by Scallywag, who received a penalty for the incident, but this meant we crossed the line late. That said,…

On the morning of departure for this leg the fog was thick and the damp air hung, despite a fresh 15 knots breeze blowing. We were sure that the planned in-port section of the leg start would be cancelled and a shorter departure would be confirmed keeping the fleet and spectators as safe as possible.…
