Thank you to all of the amazing people who donated to our Crowdrise campaign ‘Jump Kenny Jump‘ to convince Ken Read, president of North Sails to jump off Team Brunel during  the Leg 7 start of the Volvo Ocean Race – and what a jump it was! A massive thank you as well to Team Brunel and North Sails for their incredible generosity in matching these gifts and getting Ken in the very cold water for a good cause! 

With late donations still arriving, we have now raised $5,500, exceeding our original goal. With matching contributions we will have raised over $10,000 for ocean conservation in 72 hours!

What will the donations do? All of the contributions will support our No Trash. No Trail. No Trace.campaign that activates boaters to protect the ocean we all love!

We also want to thank everyone who helped share this campaign through social media, we could not have had such a successful campaign without a little help from our friends!

Ken Read, Worth my salt, pledge to love ocean
