Solar Boat Challenge
Dutch Solar Challenge – World Cup for Solar Powered Boats
When and where?
The Dutch Solar Challenge will take place from July 2 through July 9, 2016. During this challenge 39 teams from The Netherlands and abroad will compete in solar powered boats. On July 2, we start in Amsterdam, and from Amsterdam the race continues via Lemmer to Drachten, and to Grou. On July 9, the boats will finish in Leeuwarden. At all five locations, sprint and endurance races will be held, and between the locations in Friesland the contestants will be racing three stages of about sixty kilometres (ca. 37 miles). The teams develop their own boat and/or technical aspects of the boat. It’s all about handling clever techniques in the correct way, but also about agility, insight, and teamwork.
