Driving event innovation
In November 2021, the The Transat Jacques Vabre will see the world’s top offshore sailors race over 5,000 miles from Le Havre to Martinique in the West Indies. Our events team are working hard to make this edition the most environmentally friendly yet by reducing the event’s carbon emissions and promoting diversity and inclusion.
Curve are helping launch a start-up innovation challenge and incubator fund for projects to further reduce the event’s carbon footprint and spark job creation. We will also be using an accredited carbon measurement system to analyse emissions data in a move towards making the event net zero by 2025.
In a sailing first, a grant and mentoring programme will allow a female sailor to participate in the transatlantic race.
"We are building a sustainability programme that embraces diversity, addresses climate change, leaving a positive legacy in the race’s home city of Le Havre and beyond.”
