To be able to take part in the Pacific Rowing Race 2025, we need an ocean-going rowing boat. Team SWISS RAW has launched a crowdfunding campaign to cover the initial payment on the boat. You can support us under the following link:

Our commitment with oceancare

Plastic pollution in the oceans is a serious environmental problem that is having a global impact on ocean ecosystems. Until the start of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2021, we were only aware of this problem from the media. On our rowing trip, which lasted almost 35 days, we saw heaps of rubbish every day and we realised that we needed to take action. That's why we support OceanCare.

As the SWISS RAW association, we are a non-profit organisation and donate all the proceeds from the 2025 Pacific crossing to OceanCare.

Marine protection at the centre

OceanCare is an international environmental protection organisation with a focus on protecting the oceans and their inhabitants, based in Wädenswil, Canton Zurich. The organisation is committed to various environmental issues in the marine sector. OceanCare's priorities include the fight against plastic pollution in the oceans, underwater noise, deep-sea mining, animal and species protection.

OceanCare is committed to the sustainable use of the oceans and strives to promote policies and behavioural change to protect the health of the oceans. Its work focuses on various levels, from research and environmental education to political lobbying and concrete measures to protect the marine environment.


To finance the project, we are looking for supporters.
