Nieuwe sponsor, nieuwe naam: CLAFIS Victron Energy solar boat team

Met trots presenteren wij een verandering in het sponsorschap. Voortaan deelt CLAFIS Ingenieus het hoofdsponsorschap met Victron Energy en blijft Private Energy ons steunen als co-sponsor. In het vervolg gaan daarom zonneboot en –team door het water onder de naam:

CLAFIS Victron Energy Solar Boat Team

Daarmee vervalt de gele zon en ondergaan boot en bemanning een metamorfose. In het vervolg prijken CLAFIS-rood en Victron-blauw op onze boeg en bijpassende teamkleding. Tijdens de Dutch Solar Challenge 2016 varen we voor het eerst onder deze nieuwe vlag en kleuren. Aansluitend wedijveren we in Monaco om het wereldkampioenschap tijdens de Solar1 Monte Carlo Cup 2016.

Tot slot heeft bouwbedrijf Lont zich gepromoveerd van subsponsor naar co-sponsor.

We bedanken onze sponsoren en supporters voor hun vertrouwen en verheugen ons op een spectaculair raceseizoen, waarin we tot het uiterste zullen strijden om onze titels te verdedigen. Kom je kijken?

De Dutch Solar Challenge start op 2 juli in Amsterdam en eindigt op 9 juli in Leeuwarden. De Solar1 Monte Carlo Cup vindt plaats in Monaco van 14 t/m 16 juli.

DONG Energy Solar Challenge - Prologue & Sprint

The first day is over, but not without a struggle. The prologue started with high speeds but ended soon with water plants in the propulsion system, reaching the Furia III took 15 minutes and after it was finally reached it took another 5 minutes to remove all derbies. The second time the ship was even harder to reach taking even more time. In the end we did not manage to reach the minimal required average speed of 10km/h. (un)fortunately we were not alone and the jury announced that all teams are allowed to retake the average speed test in the first stage tomorrow (blauwestad to groning).
