Hydro Team

We are a group of under/post-grad/MsC/PhD students from all disciplines who design and construct a 2-3metre long energy efficient remote control boat incorporating innovations with the aim of making shipping more efficient.

The boat is entered into the international HydroContest in Saint-Tropez, France in early September. We meet on Thursdays at Boldrewood Campus - if you're interested in joining or just want to find out more, either email or Facebook message us! Throughout the year members design, construct and test a 2.5m by 2.5m water craft to carry 20kg and 200kg weights in three races.

Responsible for the craft's hull, appendages, electronics and control system while marketing their team, sponsored by Hydros and UK companies interested in modern energy and nautical innovation..
