who we are
The people behind the UBC SailBot team are a diverse and extraordinary group of students at the University of British Columbia. With support from industry mentor and yacht designer Don Martin these students design, manufacture, test, and race high-performance robotic sailboats.
With the experience, work ethic and teamwork we have developed, we are confident we have the necessary tools to delve into the Microtransat Challenge, a project that will certainly impact research and application in fields like marine robotics, energy efficiency and composite materials (to mention a few) at a global scale. Our research and design therefore holds the potential to benefit diverse governmental, military and industrial interests.
Our work has not gone unnoticed by the local, national and international media. We have been featured by The Vancouver Sun, CBC (tv and radio), Wired Magazine, and Sailing World Magazine. We have also been mentioned in a Reddit thread that generated over ten thousand views in 2 days. Through this thread the team received feedback from people all over the world expressing their excitement for UBC Engineering.
