Thank you for everyone who attended the barbecue

The barbecue hosted for members, contributors and everyone interested yesterday was a huge succes. A night filled with the big reveal of the boat, good food, laughter and great new ideas and insights on what to improves first on the boat. We want to thank every attendees for the fun night and hope to see all of you in Rotterdam at the Rotterdamse havendagen.

De barbecue voor de leden, donateurs en geïnteresseerden gisteren was een groot succes. Een avond gevuld met onder andere de onthulling van de boot voor sommige leden, goed eten, gelach en veel kritisch blikken en ideeën over waar we als eerst aan gaan werken. We willen iedereen bedanken voor het komen en de gezellige avond. En hopelijk allemaal tot in Rotterdam bij de Rotterdamse havendagen.

    Our boat is home

    The last months everyone worked hard to achieve one common goal, our very own solar boat!
    We are excited to announce that the solar boat is safe and secure on Dutch soil. Last week a team of members of the society represented the society in Monaco, during the Monaco Solar Boat & Electric Challenge at Yacht Club de Monaco. They overcame technical difficulties trying to get a boat they had never seen before operational. And they succeeded!!! We managed to participate and finish every single race with a result of reaching 9th position in the final ranking. We have big plans for the boat and with the boat safely “home” we are eager to start working on it and driven to come back next year to perform even better. We would like to express our thanks to all the teams who aided us during the races and of course to the organization and Yacht Club de Monaco.

    Thanks Clafis and MG

    We would like to thank Clafis Victron Energy Solar Boat Team and MG Energy Systems B.V. for their effort for getting our boat up and running. They helped us with an important part of our boat, the battery. Without them we would not have been able to fix the battery before the race at Yacht Club Monaco. Thanks a lot!
