Testing for IRSR 2014
May is upon us and the team is hard at work preparing our Thunderbird 2013 for the International Robotic Sailing Regatta, taking place at California Maritime Academy June 7-13. As you might imagine, a lot of testing is needed for the Thunderbird 2013 to be fully race-ready by June. Not only does the boat need to be loaded with new and refined code, the 10-person competition team needs to be familiar with all the different components going into a world-class robotic sailboat.
On May 28th APEGBC Richmond/Delta Branch will host a dinner meeting dedicated entirely to the UBC SailBot team! The title of the dinner meeting is "UBC Sailbot: Engineering an Autonomous Sailboat". If you are near Vancouver and are available on the evening of May 28th, we highly recommend you to come listen to our talk. See all details at the APEGBC event website:
