Partners and Ports
The OGR is one of the most sustainable and least environmentally impactful crewed ocean races in existence.
We believe in Full Function Oceans (FFO) and Sustainability. This is a race built on human values. It is a race filled with modern day heroes. Not only inspirational but aspirational. It has global appeal and global reach. It is a multi-year platform without equal.
Our Partners and Host Ports will use this platform to tell their story, promote their brand and shout about their values. A partnership with the OGR gives them a unique opportunity to align with a piece of history.
Multiple touch points, including boat and sail branding, in-port branding, social and traditional media exposure, global TV coverage and in port hospitality and client/team experiential opportunities are comprehensive.
The OGR will announce host ports by April 2022 and partners in the years ahead. Partners whose values and vision match ours. Partners who dare to do things differently and want to stand out in the crowd. We don’t do bells and whistles. We don’t do gimmicks. We are real. We are genuine. We are different. OGR is authentic.
McIntyre Adventure Ltd was established in 2000 to support adventure and encourage young people to follow dreams. Don McIntyre’s commitment to adventure has seen him support many other adventurers in their efforts to achieve individual dreams, by assisting with cash, equipment, advice or encouragement.
For some time, Don has been concerned that the ‘Spirit of Adventure’ may be disappearing among young people, who sometimes don’t even know how to dream, or lack the confidence to believe in themselves and ‘have a go’. By staging and underwriting the 2018 Golden Globe Race, and now the Ocean Globe Race, Don McIntyre hopes the event will be an inspiration to many and encourage them to engage in the natural world. He is an experienced solo circumnavigator and recognised as one of Australia’s great explorers. This new race was born from his desire to recreate the Golden Age of crewed racing and making it accessible to all once again. As with the GGR, McIntyre Adventure is fully underwriting the OGR to ensure its success.
