Buoyed by the success of the first four editions, the Yacht Club de Monaco is to expand the solar-powered boat event to embrace all clean energy sources. The goal: promote and optimise propulsion systems. Organised in collaboration with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Hydros Foundation and the International Powerboating Federation (UIM), the event is the only one of its kind in the world.
The purpose is to encourage technological innovation to meet the energy needs of the leisure boat and shipping industries and the accompanying and environmental prerogatives. Damen encourages this team and hope they succeed in their goal to become the number 1 Solar Boat of the World!
