RACES #energyboatchallenge

For the 32 teams, including 22 universities, representing 17 nationalities, there will be plenty of opportunities to put their boats through their paces on the sea in contests organised during the three days and visible from the Solarium of the main harbour wall (entry free to the public). A parade, sea trials, speed record, fleet race, 16-nautical-mile race round marks on a Monaco-Ventimiglia-Monaco course, endurance laps, manoeuvrability challenge and a slalom event add up to an all-encompassing programme for competitors coming from Italy, France, Netherlands, Monaco, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, Poland and the United Arab Emirates. Other teams are having to participate online such as China, Peru, South Africa and Indonesia, due to travel restrictions, and will be present for the Tech Talks.
