We enable the creation of marine reserves to reverse the crisis in our oceans


In partnership with our long-standing charity partners, The Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE), Sunseeker is sending four employees to participate in the South Coast Cycle Challenge, taking place from Friday 9 July to Sunday 11July 2021.

The Sunseeker Team will participate in the challenge to help raise funds for the incredible work of BLUE, a UK-based charity dedicated to restoring the world’s oceans to health by establishing marine protected areas and tackling overfishing. BLUE aims to see at least 30% of oceans under affective protection by 2030.

The challenge will take us through two areas of outstanding natural beauty, three national parks, and some of the most iconic coastline in the UK. As part of the challenge, which starts in Beaulieu, Hampshire and ends in Plymouth, Devon, we will be visiting three BLUE projects along the route to see first-hand some of the great work made possible by the money raised from the challenge.

Jared Hall, Jamie Morgan, Timothy Robinson and John Bytheway make up the Sunseeker Team that will ride the 210 miles (340km) over 3 days.
The challenge starts with a 80 mile (130km) ride taking us from Beaulieu through the New Forest and onwards to Sunseeker in Poole after which the Purbeck hills will act as a warm up for what’s to come in the next couple of days with the rolling roads will taking us to Weymouth where we stop for the night. The second day although shorter at 68 miles (110km) gets a bit hillier taking us along the Jurassic coast from Weymouth to Exmouth. The third day ramps up the hills going through Dartmoor on its 62 mile (100km) journey to the finish in Plymouth and finally a well-earned rest.

Blue Marine Foundation Projects along the way.

Projects include the Solent Oyster Restoration project, helping to restore oyster beds that filter the water column and provide habitats for hundreds of species. This project has already seen some fantastic results, with 12 dedicated sites and 69,000 native oysters returning to the Solent. We will also visit the charity's flagship project Lyme Bay. BLUE has developed a win-win model that benefits the marine environment and has resulted in a 52% increase in species through a sustainable fishing programme. Lastly, the challenge will take us to the Plymouth Marine Park, the first maritime national park in the UK,
which aims to involve people in the stewardship of UK coastal waters and bring a wealth of benefits to deprived coastal communities.
