SailBot 2013 Comes to Cape Ann
June 9, 2013 - June 13, 2013
Gloucester Harbor
Gloucester

Building on the success of previous SailBot regattas, SailBot 2013 will be held in Gloucester Harbor, from June 9-13, 2013! The competition is open to the 1-meter, 2-meter SailBot Class, and an Open Class (which are boats up to 4 meters in length - see the Class Rules for the actual requirements of each class).

The sailboat competition consists of multiple events and will span several days.The SailBot 2013 International Robotic Sailing Regatta is a robotic sailing competition historically held in North America in which teams of university and college students compete.

The first event, in 2006, was hosted by Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario and inspired by the success of a senior project at the University of British Columbia to build a robotic sailboat, teams have annually competed throughout the US and Canada. The goal is to create an unmanned sailboat that navigates through a variety of challenges with limited, if any, human control. Students are able to use this friendly competition between schools to apply their engineering knowledge in a multi-disciplinary task that requires mechanical, electrical, and software skill to deal with this highly variable environment.
