Solar Boat Race

More than 20 teams from Europe and the US are gearing up for the Nuon Solar Challenge - a contest to build and race a solar-powered boat - to run from July 1st. But given it is held in rainy Netherlands – a minor miracle is needed for success. Organizers predict the top speed in this race will be much slower, because of the greater force required to propel a boat through water.
"It's going to be a very different kind of race, with wind, currents and navigation all playing a role,'' said organizer Andries van Weperen. "Since this is the first time, experience will have to be our teacher.'' Good luck:. Stats for Solar Boat Race Trending: Older & Average
