America's Cup Healthy Ocean Project: "More Than A Sport"

Excitement is building as America’s Cup comes to San Francisco in 2012 and 2013. Your Thank You Ocean campaign is proud to support the Healthy Ocean Project, “the embodiment of the America’s Cup commitment to leave a positive social and environmental legacy.” Our guest is Jill McCarthy, Head of Partnerships, who explains how AC Healthy Ocean Project embraces the direct connection between sailing and the ocean. Partnering with leading ocean conservation organizations, AC Healthy Ocean Project focuses on three areas that align with Thank You Ocean: marine protected areas, life choices for sustainable seas and reducing the amount of single use plastic that ends up in the ocean.
