Engineers of Innovation is about new ideas and designing the on the edge of technology. We are exploring the options to automatically sail across the Atlantic sea. The first small steps have been taken and we hope we can follow up on this idea. Stay tuned for more updates!
At Friday the 21st of February we are celebrating our third year anniversary! We hope a large group will attend just like last year. We hope on a great vibe, and a great success. We would like to thank De Prael for helping us host this evening.
The 6th and 7th of September we will be present at the last raceweekend of the year in Dordrecht. In the past couple of weeks we repaired the hydrofoil supports and we are ready to give it our all again.
After a long, exhausting but mostly fun week, we are back on the road towards home. During the races in Monaco, we gained tons of experience. After we are fully recovered and rested from the races we will start focusing on rebuilding the hydrofoil!
We just experienced a major setback. While preparing for the slalom and match races our front foil broke. Unfortunately, this is not something we can easily fix. Determined to continue racing we will sail the rest of competitions without foils. Unfortunately, this will greatly reduce our performance.

We passed the technical inspection! We will now slowly start preparing for a test run this afternoon. During this run, we hope to perfect our hydrofoil settings for Monaco conditions.
It is 05:50, and we have just departed towards Monaco. Today we have an 800km drive planned towards our camping. Everyone is still in a good mood and excited for our first race in Monaco.
