After two successful editions in 2020 and 2021 between St Pierre et Miquelon and Lorient, The Défi Pure Ocean will take place between Bermuda and Lorient in May 2022.
BERMUDES LORIENT – DÉFI PURE OCEAN, proposed by PURE OCEAN, ABSOLUTE DREAMER and LORIENT GRAND LARGE is a sailing challenge across the Atlantic Ocean, open to all sailing boat types and classes, with several goals:
- beat the reference time
- raise public awareness about the Ocean and its conservation
- collect useful data via citizen science to help scientific research for the Ocean
- raise funds to support state-of-the-art applied research projects to conserve marine biodiversity, protect and restore fragile marine ecosystems and increase knowledge of the ocean
The core value of this challenge is to be an “other” race, fully focused on the urgent need to protect the Ocean and the means to achieve this.
