Here we have footage of just one reason (but possibly the cutest one) for doing the science while the crews row around the UK. We want to ensure that our waters are as healthy as possible so that we, our children and our grandchildren, can continue to see these beautiful creatures, healthy and happy. Incredible scenes on only the second day of the race. I can't wait to see what else the crews come across!
