Bluewater to help Cape Town save 500,000 single-use plastic water bottles from being used during Volvo Ocean Race stop-over

Cape Town, November 22, 2017 – Around half-a-million plastic water bottles will be avoided during the upcoming Volvo Ocean Race stop-over in Cape Town thanks to the unique technology provided by Bluewater, a world leader in innovative water purification solutions.

Bluewater has joined forces with the Cape Town city authorities, V&A Waterfront, Volvo Ocean Race and 11th Hour Racing, an organisation promoting collaborative, systemic change for the health of the marine environment, to provide four hydration stations able to meet the drinking water needs of the hundreds of thousands of visitors expected to visit the Volvo Ocean Race village from November 24 to December 10.

“Bluewater stepped in to help the city and its citizens after learning that Cape Town’s water reservoirs are at critical lows due to the drought conditions,” said Anders Jacobson, CEO and co-founder of Blue AB, the Swedish holding company that owns Bluewater.

Volvo Ocean Race: Fast and furious final week en-route to Cape Town

The second week at sea on Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 has been a predominantly nervous and edgy time for the crew of Team AkzoNobel after they gambled on an easterly strategy to help them get back in contention with the leading teams.

After crossing the equator in fifth place on Monday November 13, the team fell into formation with the rest of the fleet as the boats powered south west towards the coast of Brazil, making fast progress in steady, southern hemisphere trade winds.

By Tuesday November 14, isolated from the leading group – Dongfeng Race Team (CHN), Mapfre (ESP), Vestas 11th Hour Racing (DEN/USA) and Team Brunel (NED) – and well ahead of sixth and seventh placed Turn the Tide on Plastic (UN) and Sun Hung Kai Scallywag (HKG) – with nobody to pace themselves against, for a few days the Team AkzoNobel crew struggled to match the speed of the leaders.
