11th Hour Racing , sustainability partner to the Ben Ainslie Racing Team for America's Cup (AC35), are the first supporters of the Coral Garden Initiative. We are grateful for what is a legacy for Bermuda and a demonstration of belief in our coral restoration work.
11th Hour Racing's coral garden is filled with cultured juveniles of mustard hill coral, and supports preliminary investigations on the adaptation of micro-fragmentation techniques for brain coral, star coral, and mustard hill coral. To date results indicate a good survival; photographs taken on a regular basis are used to quantify growth. First results will be available in December 2018.
