As team members from previous solar teams we have started our own private team in 2015. Over the years there have been some changes in the team structure but most of the original members are still active within sunflare. But the team grew from 5 to 8 members. As students it was a nice side project during our study. Now all the members have started working the dynamic is changing again. Some of the members have found their job within their solar boat expertise and can share their knowledge that has been gathered over the years.
During the past years we have been building our boat and optimizing all the components. We started as one of the most efficient displacement boat due the hull shape and in house designed drivetrain. Over the years we improved the hull and all the internal electronic components, we started switching from the standard industrial components to lightweight in house designed components to improve efficiency and weight. In 2020 added hydrofoils and are able to fly efficient and reach speeds up to 50 km/h. Last year we never had the change to be challenged by ours competitors so we are looking forward to the next race.
