EarthRace Boat

If you haven’t heard of Earthrace before, it is an incredible boat race around the world, with the boat powered entirely by biodiesel fuels, and that remains entirely carbon neutral. Yesterday, the Earthrace boat launched from Spain with a crew of 5 people. The cool thing is, there are positions available for “guest crew” that can jump on the boat at any of the refuelling stops to be a part of the race in person. If you want to help support the boat, but have a tendency to get seasick, you can buy “nautical miles” to help pay for the biofuel needed to complete the Earthrace. Keep reading to find out more about this exciting event taking place right now!

The purpose of the trip is twofold: first, the developers want to prove that it is easy to travel vast distances entirely on biofuels, and second, to raise awareness about the importance of being carbon neutral on the sea.
