First race day!

Bonjour and welcome to the live blog of the first day of the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge!

Today the event starts with a parade where all the boats participating in the various competition classes can be admired in the harbour. It is amazing to see all other boats sailing on different sustainable energy sources, such as solar and battery.

After the parade we will start with our first challenge of the race: the Manoeuvrability Trial! In this challenge we are tested on our ability to make specific manoeuvres in the harbour. 

To fully prepare ourselves for this challenge we are going to do a final test manoeuvrability practice in the harbour now. We are confident and ready for this challenge. Let’s show what our boat can do!
