B&G announced its partnership with 11th Hour Racing Team prior to this weekend’s start in The Ocean Race Europe in Lorient, France.
The Navico-owned company will support 11th Hour Racing Team with a full suite of marine electronics, including B&G Nemesis displays. The partnership will also seek to develop new ideas, test new products and collaborate on future technologies and sustainability initiatives.
B&G will also supply BioBase technology, supporting 11th Hour’s mission to protect aquatic environments; BioBase provides mapping for monitoring vegetation densities, bottom hardness and other water-quality characteristics.
This data is used by researchers, scientists and local water resource officials on studies and issues related to wetland habitats and the health of waterways and fisheries.
“For race-proven and reliable onboard electronics, our only choice was B&G,” said 11th Hour Racing Team CEO Mark Towill in a statement. “Our mission is to develop a high-performance sports team utilizing the best technologies and innovations while working with brands and partners to drive positive change within the industry for the health of our oceans.”
