Propulsion: to each their own solution

Keen to expand the event to all renewable energy sources, the Yacht Club de Monaco is launching another first. Competitors, engineering students and industrialists are to be given a one-design catamaran hull (Monaco Energy Class), specially designed for competition. Their challenge is to build a cockpit for their boat and design the most powerful and durable propulsion system possible, all from a given amount of energy. 

The initiative will highlight innovative ideas conceived by young engineers who will share their works on “Open Source” every evening. All have the same ambition: to create, innovate and rethink propulsion systems for the future that fully respect the environment.
