They all share a common ambition: to develop alternative propulsion systems to build the yachting of tomorrow. Exchanges between universities and the yachting industry are rich in lessons learned, as shown by the relationship between the Hydrovinci team and FinX, a young stat-up that uses bio mimicry for its propulsion system. The company was present at the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge exhibition in 2019 and met the students, which led to a collaboration that continues to this day.
But also the French Wave Estaca, winners in 2019 of the nautical events, which will test an ADV Tech vertical axis propeller this year. The Nobiskrug shipyard will also take part in this challenge in order to reflect on the use of new energies for the motorisation of future yachts.
The Monaco Energy Boat Challenge will open its doors on Tuesday 6th July 2021 for 5 days of competitions, conferences and exhibitions. In the meantime, competitors must submit their entry forms in the Solar categories by the end of March and by the end of May for the teams competing in the Open Sea.05 class.
