With the European Maritime Race Virtual Regatta launches the “Impact” races
A new concept:
The European Maritime Race is a way for us to introduce our new concept of Impact Races. They will aim to highlight both environmental and social issues related to the oceans.
During the Impact Races, many surprises await you, such as draws to win free fulls-packs or the opportunity to become a full-fledged player in the game! Indeed, being an ambassador will allow you to share with the discord community the actions/associations for the protection of the seas and oceans that are close to your heart.
Through the Virtual Regatta impact races, we want to participate in our own way to the creation of a more virtuous world. Encouraging us all to act responsibly and to have a positive impact on the people and things around us.
The European Maritime Race, what is it?
Taking place from 20 May, the race will coincide with European Maritime Day.
This day is an annual event which aims to highlight the importance of the seas and oceans in the daily lives of Europeans.
During the event, a number of workshops will be offered, including
- Decarbonisation & climate neutrality
- Zero pollution
- Circular economy and waste prevention
- Biodiversity, preservation and restoration of ecosystems
- Ocean knowledge, research and innovation
- Citizen engagement and knowledge of the ocean
In parallel to these workshops, we will be communicating daily on these same themes, to keep you informed of current and future challenges facing the sea and oceans.
About the race :
On Friday 20 May, starting at 8pm, the European Maritime Race will be held in Ravenna, Italy.
Its route will allow you to discover part of our magnificent and sometimes little known European seas.
At the helm of your “Ocean Fifty” from Italy, you will sail along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Then it’s time to cross the Ionian Sea, heading towards the island of Cyprus, where you’ll sail around its north-east. On the way back, you will pass by Malta and Sicily before arriving in Cagliari, a town in the south of Sardinia.
