17 Jul 2017 Thin-film solar boat Twente ends third in Monaco
Fantastic third place for debutant racing team
Solar Boat Twente, who entered the Solar & Electric Boat Challenge of the Yacht Club de Monaco with a thin-film solar boat, ended at a successful third place in the general ranking for open class boats. After months of hard work, preparation, designing and engineering with the support of Solliance Solar Research and Hanergy Solar, the team looks back at a fantastic weekend in Monaco. It was a bumpy road to get there, but the ambition of the debutant solar boat team was to end third, and they did. We congratulate Solar Team Twente with this fantastic result! See you next year!
