The 2012 World Robotic Sailing Championships03/08/2012 at 11:20 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Just a quick post to say we (Aberystwyth University) are hosting this year’s World Robotic Sailing Championships in Cardiff from the 17th to 21st of September.
If you’d like to come and compete or to present a conference poster, then please register by August 10th 2012. If you don’t have a boat, then don’t worry! We’ve got a new event this year called the Hacker Challenge, where teams collaborate with each other to build a boat from spare parts they’ve brought with them or that they buy or borrow from others. On the last day we’ll have a quick set of presentations and some races for these boats.
If you just want to come and watch, we’ll have details about this soon and of course there will be plenty of details posted on the event webpage during the competition.
Also if you’d like to help support the event financially, then please consider donating some money on our Crowed Funder page – http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/investment/world-robotic-sailing-championships-2012-1133.
