The Solar Boat Team heads to Monaco

TU Delft’s Solar Boat Team set sail for one of Europe’s most exotic locales last week. They participated in the Monaco Solar Boat Challenge from July 14-16, 2016.

They competed against other teams from around the world at the event, which was comprised of four competitions: endurance, top speed, a slalom race and a sprint. Unfortunately, their boat, which was constructed to handle Frisian lakes instead of the waves and saltwater in Port Hercule, ran into some technical difficulties. Nevertheless, the team managed to land in second place in the overall rankings and received the Riva Beauty Award.
