Background

Started as a spin-off from the MicroTransat challenge, WRSC promotes the development of robotic sailboats. A series of competitions test the boats’ performance ranging from speed to navigation and endurance.

The accompanying International Robotic Sailing Conference provides an ideal venue to discuss the broad range of scientific problems involved in the design and development of autonomous sailboats.
