The Atlantic Cup Presented by 11th Hour Racing Announces Green Initiatives for all Three Legs of its Upcoming Class 40 Race
April 25, 2012 10:13 AM - Andrea Oki, JDP Communications

With less than a month until the start of the second annual 2012 Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing, Manuka Sports Event Management, is pleased to announce their ecological plans to run the first carbon neutral sailing race in the United States during its three legs of competition; Charleston, S.C. (May 11) to New York Harbor (May 14-19) to Newport, R.I. (May 26-27). The Atlantic Cup's carbon neutrality initiatives will be supported by Green Mountain Energy Company, the nation's longest serving green power retailer. The race features an international fleet of 13 competitors, with teams from France, England, United States and Germany all slated to be on the start line for what will be the largest fleet of Class 40s ever to race in the United States. The 2012 Atlantic Cup carbon footprint will be calculated prior to the race start by Green Mountain. Based on these calculations and a post-race assessment, carbon offsets and renewable energy certificates (RECs) will be retired in order to offset emissions associated with the event, such as staff air travel, ground and water transportation, staff hotel stays, and event electricity usage. "It's been a challenging endeavor to organize and run a carbon neutral sailing race, and it's possible in large part to the continued support and guidance from 11th Hour Racing and partnership with Green Mountain," said Hugh Piggin, Manuka Sports Event Management Founder and Atlantic Cup Race Director.

April 15, 2012 (Los Angeles, CA) — At the CicLAvia event in downtown Los Angeles today, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced plans for a bike sharing demonstration project in the City. In the spirit of Mayor Villaraigosa's invitation for "Angelenos to get out of their cars and on to the streets," Bike Nation, the only Southern California-based bike share company, plans to install 400 kiosks with a total of 4,000 bikes throughout the City of Los Angeles, with the first kiosks expected to be in operation during the fourth quarter of 2012. "Bike share programs have proven successful in urban areas around the world and in major cities in the United States," stated Navin Narang, Founder, Bike Nation. "We are excited to work with the City of Los Angeles to implement this demonstration project and provide healthy, low-cost transit options and connectivity between transit connections, business centers and regional destinations." The bicycle sharing demonstration will be a service in which bicycles are made available for public use and are checked-out and returned to self service kiosks. The usage fees for the bicycle share system are incentivized for turnover and trips of less than 30 minutes in duration. Bike Nation will create a system that is safe, efficient and dependable and will provide well-trained, supervised staff and maintenance crew to operate the system.
