The twins, known as the Turner twins, are travelling around the UK 100 per cent emission free and are stopping off at marinas on the way to conduct ocean conservation workshops.

The first stop on their nationwide tour is Gunwharf Quays where they will be staying for two days from August 6 to August 7 and they will be encouraging the public to get involved in workshops.

The tour is in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, which is a new environmental organisation that focuses on the ocean’s major threats, and is sponsored by Brown Shipley and Quintet Earth.

At each of the10 stops of the tour, Hugo and Ross will be educating the public on schemes that can help end the ruining of the ocean, through workshops, beach cleans and screenings of documentaries.

The twins’ ambition to complete the tour 100 per cent emission free means that everything will be powered by hydrogen technology, provided by TCP Eco.

The UK tour will consist of Portsmouth, Plymouth, Cardiff, Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, and London.

Ross and Hugo together

Hugo and Ross have recently completed a six-week research trip where they tried to sail to the Atlantic Pole of Inaccessibility, but due to bad weather and the twin’s desire to sail 100 per cent emission free, they were unable to complete the trip.

The pair are known for their adventurous trips and back in 2007, Hugo broke his neck in a diving accident which led to a drive for exploring.

To date, they have sailed across the Atlantic, attempted to cross Greenland, summited Mt Elbrus, and reached four of the five Poles of Inaccessibility.

The Turner twins are on a mission to help teach people about the problems with the ocean by using new technology.

The tour will begin on Tuesday, August 6 and will continue until Sunday, October 9.
