The Turn the Tide on Plastic sailing team is currently leading the Volvo Ocean Race.

Dee Caffari and her team feature regularly on these pages as they strive to raise awareness of the United Nations Environment’s ‘Clean Seas: Turn the Tide on Plastic’ campaign while competing in the epic round-the-world race.

And so we are delighted to flag up that the team is now in the lead. Follow the progress of the crew, and get behind them on Twitter @TurnTidePlastic
