Thunderbird 2013 is sailing!

After months of hard work and dedication to the project, we can now proudly say that we have sailed the Thunderbird 2013 for the first time.

A lot of curious sailors around the robotic sailboat.

It all came together very well in the end, and with the help from the good guys at Ferreira Collision Centres, we have a beautifully painted keel and rudder too!

From now on a lot of on-water testing awaits us as it is getting closer and closer to the SailBot competition in Gloucester, June 9th to 14th.

We will keep on updating the website with info about the testing we do, and a lot of good pictures and video.
