Greenboats has received the World Sailing 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award

German boatbuilders Greenboats has received the World Sailing 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award in recognition for their game-changing design that has been proven to lower emissions and increase the lifespan of high-performance racing yachts.

At a ceremony at The Ocean Race Village at V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, Friedrich J. Deimann, Founder of Greenboats, received the bespoke trophy from the Sail Africa Youth Development Foundation, winners of the 2021 World Sailing 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award.

As well as the trophy, made from recycled carbon fibre sourced from an America’s Cup boat and infused with bio resin, Greenboats received the USD$10,000 prize courtesy of 11th Hour Racing to invest in their workshop and help further their sustainability activities.

The event was attended by representatives of The Ocean Race and South African Sailing. Young people from Sail Africa and Lawhill Maritime School and six local yacht club sailing academies also had the opportunity to hear from Greenboats and The Ocean Race about their extensive efforts to make sailing more sustainable.
