OCEAN AWARENESS & DATA SHARING
RACE AGAINST TIME: Jules Verne was 150 years ahead of his time, when he predicted that hydrogen would be the fuel of the future. Herbert George Wells, was a contemporary science fiction writer, who predicted time travel. That will have to wait.
If the importance of our oceans was taught in schools, as part of an educational curriculum, they may not have been so polluted and acid today.
Ocean awareness, or literacy is not high on academic agendas. Televised documentary programmes have done more to make life under the waves more popular, highlighting the marine litter problem that is of major concern to marine biologists. With plastic now seen in the remotest corners of the globe and deepest trenches of the ocean.
Where Formula Hydrogen is a high-tech race against the clock, it is likely to attract attention from the media and a large following from boating enthusiasts, especially those who may want their next cruiser to be green.
We would like to expand on that, to introduce nature conservation as part of eco sport. The whole point of Net Zero, being conservation of marine life.
We would encourage competitors to share positional and other onboard data, to include weather (wave and wind) conditions, elapsed time, regular ocean scans for alkalinity, salinity and wildlife encountered - especially large marine animals - to paint an inclusive picture of life at sea for educational purposes - and for the media.
In addition, onboard AI has a big part to play, though not compulsory, as an entry qualification. Though contributing to safer high speed voyages, to include autonomous navigation and computing. And medical monitoring of the crew.
Each port might be treated as a pit stop during the competition phase, focusing on the importance of harbour management, including goods handling capacity, and passenger numbers, for all cooperating authorities.
