Earthrace announces Australian Tour Dates

Over the last two years of promotions, the amazing Earthrace boat has had nearly 150,000 people walk through her, and she’s been seen on TV networks, and in Newspapers and Magazines around the globe.  She’s also been through over a dozen storms, has bullet holes from Columbians, scars from logs off Borneo, and her crew were detained under armed guard in Guatemala…and earlier this year she set a new World Record for a powerboat to circle the globe, smashing the old record by over 2 weeks, while running 100% biodiesel, and a net zero carbon footprint.

On December 13th, just a few weeks from now, this battle-scarred warrior arrives in the historic town of 1770 in Northern Queensland, at the start of a six-week Australian tour.  The boat and crew will be visiting around 20 locations down the East Coast, with this amazing vessel being opened to the public at all of them.

Earthrace skipper Pete Bethune says the public open days are a crucial way for the team to connect with people, especially with regards to Biofuels and carbon footprints.  Australia has much to gain from a sustainable Biofuels program, and the team is hopeful it can encourage debate and awareness about the issues involved through the tour.  

It is also the only chance that Australians will have to look through this awesome carbon fibre raceboat before it heads home to New Zealand in February.  The Australian Tour is sponsored by Investment company JB Global.
