23 July 2019 (NEWPORT, RI) — 11th Hour Racing announced today three new grantees within its Ambassador Program, which is comprised of a community of marine industry professionals committed to ocean health, and representing many sections of the sport of sailing:
- East Bay Sailing Foundation chosen by Ambassador John Mollicone;
- Mystic Aquarium chosen by Ambassador Anthony Kotoun;
- The Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve chosen by Ambassador Elizabeth Kratzig.
A fourth grantee, Chicago Maritime Arts Center, has been chosen for the second year running by Ambassador Dave Rearick.
All 11th Hour Racing Ambassadors have the opportunity to work with a non-profit organization of their choice, focusing on specific ocean health projects. While these collaborations are an important element of 11th Hour Racing’s mission and programmatic strategy, they also empower the Ambassadors to act as real changemakers in their communities and use their influence to unite their fans and peers around shared values.
