Cape Wind Sponsors Ocean Sailboat Racer
October 19, 2010
Nantucket Sound wind-farm developer Cape Wind has agreed to sign on as the “eco partner” of U.S. sailor Brad Van Liew’s entry in the VELUX 5 Oceans race — a solo race around the world in a new class of sailboats designed to be environmentally sustainable.
The race begins on October 17. Cape Wind and Van Liew’s shore support team will also spearhead a “Cape Wind Eco Partner Challenge” asking both individuals and organizations to join the renewable-energy mission by collectively matching sponsorship funds to support Van Liew’s race.
