Save Our Seas Ocean Racing today is in the unfortunate position to have to announce the postponement of the Around Australia Sailing World Record attempt. Scheduled to commence on Wednesday 11th May, the attempt has been put on hold due to unforseen logistical issues. The crew and Save Our Seas would particularly like to thank all involved, especially sponsors, the marine industry and the media, for their support to date.

Save Our Seas remained committed to the World Record attempt and to their goal of raising awareness of the damage that plastics continue to do to our environment. We encourage all supporters to continue their own commitment to Save Our Seas and to the future record attempt.
