Race for Water: Between Cuba and the Dominican Republic

Race for Water: Between Cuba and the Dominican Republic

And so the curtain falls on the Cuban stopover of the Race for Water Odyssey! The 100% autonomous vessel left the port of Havana on Tuesday 8 August 2017 and has now set a course for the Dominican Republic. Punctuated by a series of high points, brief summaries of which can be found below, the 18-day stopover once again proved to be an intense moment for all the crew, who were both saddened to see the levels of pollution in the streets of Havana and positive about the exchanges they had with people from the area. Confident that discussions will be on-going and about the implementation of various plastic waste management solutions, Pascal Morizot (captain of the Race for Water) and his team are currently heading for Santo Domingo with an ETA of 21 August.
