Three competitions, three podium finishes

Hydrocontest is an international student competition focusing on the energy efficiency of ships. The contest is divided into three competition categories: light boats (20 kg), heavy boats (200 kg) and a long-distance race (with light boats).

Our competitors have been taking part in this contest since 2015.

This year, the team finished third, second and joint third. Quite an achievement in the heavy boat competition given that the team had to patch up a damaged boat with tape and cling film to compete in the final!

Two awards, including the Energy Observer Award

The design award was won by the light boat, which was based on last year's model with some changes that have brought their share of benefits, including vessel stability.

Finally the heavy boat received the Energy Observer's distinctive award for energy efficiency.

Congratulations to the team on their excellent performance in this prestigious competition!
