RC Sailing Barcelona University Regatta

We have created a university scholarship for training in the design and construction of a radio-controlled boat aimed at 3rd and 4th year engineering students, to conceptualize, design and build a small-scale, competitive radio-controlled boat, propelled by the wind, applying knowledge acquired during the course.

Can you imagine the ships of the future?

When design, talent, technology and speed come together to create a university race of radio-controlled boats.
