Back on October 10th, UBC hosted a showcase for major donors to the university entitled UniquelyUBC, and the UBC Sailbot Team was in attendance! Represented by two of our Mechanical Team Leads – Adrian Granchelli and Neil Dobie – and our Co-Captain – Karry Ocean – we showed off this year`s award winning and record setting boat. However, the main focus was to get influential people excited about the prospect of our transatlantic project and it was clear that the word of our project was spreading. Between Thunderbird 2013 posting a perfect score this year and the beginning of our project to cross the Atlantic Ocean and set a world record, UBC Sailbot was creating a buzz.
