Next season we’ll take part in the NK ZonnebootRace (Dutch Championship) in Akkrum on the 11th and 12th of May 2018. Besides we’ll also start the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge in Monaco, the 12th-14th of July 2018. Take a look at last year’s races below!
Only one week after the race in Rotterdam, the last race of the season will take place. This race will be held in Wildau, on the outskirts of Berlin. On friday, we’ll be present for the technical inspection. On saturday, the 9th of September, the actual race will take place: a slalom, sprint and endurance.
In Germany we finished 2nd in the final ranking, which is a great conclusion to an even greater first season for us!
In the weekend of September 1st-2nd, it’s time for the second to last solar boat race in the 2017 season. The race will take place in Rotterdam, during the 40th edition of the ‘Wereldhavendagen’. This is an enormous event with hundreds of thousands of visitors, all organized in the theme ‘water’. A great opportunity to race here with our boat!
Despite some rain during the race, we managed to get to the finish and win a second overall prize.
July the 13th till the 15th, we took part in the Monaco Solar Electric Challenge: the solar boat world championship in Monaco. After a successfull race, we finished third in the overall ranking. We’re very satisfied with this great result after a year of hard work!
