The Prince of Wales said: “These Ocean Summits that bring together the worlds of sport, industry, government, science and ocean advocates, are a vital part of the collaborative steps that are being taken to tackle the ubiquitous pollution of the ocean with plastic debris as well as the broader threats to the oceans health. “A global sporting event, with seven teams involved, is in a unique position to offer first-hand evidence of the impact plastic pollution is having on the health of our ocean. “The boats cross some of the remotest parts of the oceans on earth. Places so far flung that, in one case, they were actually closer to the astronauts on the International Space Station than to any human on our planet. “This information collected from the seas is critically important for the scientific community. “Looking at the data collected it is deeply troubling to see how highly pervasive microplastics have become. Samples have even been discovered in what we once would’ve considered to be the pristine environment of Antarctica.” In Partnership with the UN Environment Clean Seas campaign, the Ocean Summits offer business, government, organisations and ocean advocates a platform to showcase robust, scientifically based content aimed at generating discussion and innovative solutions to the plastic crisis. Prince Charles added: “Over the past months we have seen, at last, some decisive action taken by a range of individuals, private companies and governments in response to the growing concern about how a global plastics plague is threatening not only our seas but the wealth of biodiversity they support but also ourselves.” ]]> 6/6/2018 1:21:00 PM f794873d-a461-4a5e-9fb4-6a943cf9b729/VNR Ocean Summit, Cardiff - A platform for innovation and change, Cardiff https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/vnr-ocean-summit--cardiff---a-platform-for-innovation-and-change--cardiff/a/f794873d-a461-4a5e-9fb4-6a943cf9b729 VNR Ocean Summit, Cardiff - A platform for innovation and change, Cardiff The Ocean Summit, during the Cardiff stopover, has seen a range of announcements that provide further momentum in the fight against plastic pollution. ]]> 6/5/2018 5:08:00 PM d90df0f7-9ade-4968-a457-90f608e5dba8/VNR Ocean Summit - New data reveals microplastics in world’s remotest ocean https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/vnr-ocean-summit---new-data-reveals-microplastics-in-world-s-remotest-ocean/a/d90df0f7-9ade-4968-a457-90f608e5dba8 VNR Ocean Summit - New data reveals microplastics in world’s remotest ocean The Volvo Ocean Race Science Programme found levels of plastic in areas of the Southern Ocean that have never before been tested. The groundbreaking data is set to be released today (18th May) at the Volvo Ocean Race Ocean Summit, which explores the issues and solutions to the plastic crisis, at the Race stopover in Newport, USA. The findings show that close to Point Nemo there were between nine and 26 particles of microplastic per cubic metre. As the boats sailed close to Cape Horn, off the tip of South America, measurements increased to 57 particles per cubic metre. ]]> 5/18/2018 7:08:00 PM 3efd8e93-6bb6-4b25-8846-0ccaa37e399a/Fleet sails around Oil Rigs off Brazil 24 Apr https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/fleet-sails-around-oil-rigs-off-brazil-24-apr/a/3efd8e93-6bb6-4b25-8846-0ccaa37e399a Fleet sails around Oil Rigs off Brazil 24 Apr Fleet sails around Campos Oil Rigs off Brazil coast 24 Apr, race exclusion zone ]]> 4/27/2018 9:36:00 AM 2e52f03c-d3ee-40ef-99b5-da7be645b0bc/Surf and clean as Volvo Ocean Race sailors hit the beach https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/surf-and-clean-as-volvo-ocean-race-sailors-hit-the-beach/a/2e52f03c-d3ee-40ef-99b5-da7be645b0bc Surf and clean as Volvo Ocean Race sailors hit the beach Crew from Turn the Tide on Plastic and Vestas 11th Hour Racing visit first ever eco-surf competition and help out at beach clean in Itajaí. Inspired by the Volvo Ocean Race and the UN #CleanSeas campaign, members of an eco-surf group held a surf competition to highlight plastic pollution during the Itajai stopover. Turn the Tide on Plastic’s Bleddyn Mon and Lucas Chapman hit the waves alongside Vestas 11th Hour Racing crew members Simon Fisher and Stacey Jackson. The teams then rolled up their sleeves to collect some of the debris scattered along Praia Da Atalaia in Itajai. Simon Fisher, Vestas 11th Hour’s navigator, went surfing at the event and took part in the beach clean. He said: “It was great to be able to come here and lend our support to the event, have a surf and be part of the beach clean up. “The organisers have been so creative to make boards out of plastic bottles and the kids can go out and enjoy them in the water. This is a good way of demonstrating how we all need to be conscious about the plastic we’re using and remember to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle.” Turn the Tide on Plastic’s Lucas Chapman added: “I grew up on the beach and as a kid I was always surfing. For the past year I have been surfing a 65-foot yacht through the world’s oceans, spreading the message about the need to clean up the seas. “It’s fantastic to see that with the Volvo Ocean Race coming to town, people are not only embracing the sport of sailing but the need to make a difference by understanding the causes of the plastic pollution and cleaning up the beach here in Itajai.” The Eco-Surf project is the brainchild of Brazilian surfer Gairo Lemut who was so shocked by the amount of plastic bottles he saw washed up on a Hawaiian beach that he decided to start his own plastic awareness raising project. Returning to Brazil, Gairo started the initiative to highlight the issue by making surfboards out of plastic bottles. The boards, made from a base of plastic bottles, are used by local children at surf schools to learn to surf and find out how discarded plastic can eventually make it’s way from rivers into the sea. Over the eight years since the project started the team has visited a range of South and Central American countries to spread the message amongst the surf community. Ney Machado, president of the project, says the aim is to inspire children to take action in their own lives and those of their families to make a difference to the plastic problem. Ney said: “The fact that the Volvo Ocean Race was coming to Itajai inspired us to hold this surfing competition to showcase surfing, that we can make cheap surf boards by recycling plastic and to send a message about the shocking amount of plastic washed up on beaches around the world. “We’re finding that people in inland towns and cities are not disposing of their plastic items properly and they’re ending up in rivers, eventually making their way into the sea. “By creating this initiative, we want the surfing community to embrace the need to reduce our plastic obsession and producing the plastic bottle boards gives a visible representation of the problem which hopefully makes people more conscious of the crisis and how we can all play a part in solving it." ]]> 4/16/2018 6:16:00 PM a8413878-cbcd-49ba-91a5-ede54fa217d1/TTT Drifter buoy Southern Ocean, Leg 7 https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/ttt-drifter-buoy-southern-ocean--leg-7/a/a8413878-cbcd-49ba-91a5-ede54fa217d1 TTT Drifter buoy Southern Ocean, Leg 7 Dee Caffari explaining the deployment of drifter buoys in Southern Ocean on leg 7 ]]> 3/23/2018 2:03:00 PM ebb1efd9-575e-46b6-b607-6b6e123cbaed/VEH Drifter buoy Southern Ocean, Leg 7 https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/veh-drifter-buoy-southern-ocean--leg-7/a/ebb1efd9-575e-46b6-b607-6b6e123cbaed VEH Drifter buoy Southern Ocean, Leg 7 Charlie Enright explaining the deployment of drifter buoys in Southern Ocean on leg 7 ]]> 3/23/2018 1:40:00 PM 50396582-1474-455e-bec6-5b1093a57057/TTT Drifter buoy Equator, Leg 6 https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/ttt-drifter-buoy-equator--leg-6/a/50396582-1474-455e-bec6-5b1093a57057 TTT Drifter buoy Equator, Leg 6 TTT Drifter buoys deployed across the equator on leg 6 ]]> 3/23/2018 1:06:00 PM 7a4e86ff-0ebe-4d14-b2e5-07dd8539d3a7/New Zealand Signs the Clean Seas pledge https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/new-zealand-signs-the-clean-seas-pledge/a/7a4e86ff-0ebe-4d14-b2e5-07dd8539d3a7 New Zealand Signs the Clean Seas pledge New Zealand has become the latest country to sign up to the United Nations Environment campaign to rid our oceans of plastic. Associate Environment Minister Eugenie Sage signed up to the ambitious campaign, supported by the Volvo Ocean Race, at the Volvo Pavilion in the Race Village in Auckland on Monday. In doing so, New Zealand became the 42nd country to sign up to the five-year long campaign. Over 70,000 individuals and a wide range of businesses have also pledged to join the fight against marine plastic. “New Zealand is proud to be joining this campaign to stop plastic polluting our seas,” Ms Sage said. “Scientists estimate that there are over 150 million tonnes of plastics in the ocean today. If nothing changes then plastic in oceans will weigh more than all the fish that live in them by 2050. “By signing up to the Clean Seas campaign, we are making it clear that New Zealand wants to be part of the solution to this problem. We are taking steps to prevent litter entering our oceans by hitting it at its source on land.” ]]> 3/12/2018 5:26:00 AM 78fb1fbf-93ed-495e-b39a-7865b4f9c5eb/TTT 11 Feb Albatros Boatfeed Leg6 https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/ttt-11-feb-albatros-boatfeed-leg6/a/78fb1fbf-93ed-495e-b39a-7865b4f9c5eb TTT 11 Feb Albatros Boatfeed Leg6 Albatros flying, Boatfeed ]]> 2/11/2018 10:51:00 AM 4a2d2fbb-669a-4483-be83-a284537f4e60/IV IT TTT Clapcich Plastic 12 Jan Leg 4 https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/iv-it-ttt-clapcich-plastic-12-jan-leg-4/a/4a2d2fbb-669a-4483-be83-a284537f4e60 IV IT TTT Clapcich Plastic 12 Jan Leg 4 Interview in Italian with Francesca Clapcich of Turn the Tide on Plastic on the research programme ]]> 1/26/2018 4:01:00 PM 533ff7b6-bbd8-4942-8015-6896b9b2d45f/VNR Ocean Summit in Hong Kong https://video.volvooceanrace.com/images-and-videos/video/vnr-ocean-summit-in-hong-kong/a/533ff7b6-bbd8-4942-8015-6896b9b2d45f VNR Ocean Summit in Hong Kong VNR of the Ocean Summit in Hong Kong.
