p6130333 Drone Sailboat Built by College Students
The Missus, a mini (2-meter) autonomous sailboat, will compete in the 6th International Robotic Sailboat Championships this June, in Vancouver, BC.

We are a group of Memorial University students who are building an autonomous sailboat to compete in the Sailbot and World Robotic Sailing competition. The team is made up of students from all MUN engineering disciplines. We hope to compete in the 2011 Sailbot competition with our 2m Sailbot class sailboat. As a team we are designing, fabricating and programming a fully autonomous vessel which will compete in match racing, station keeping, and long distance races. The ultimate challenge will be to send an autonomous sailboat across the Atlantic ocean. We hope you will take the time to browse through the site, see what we are up to, and add to the quest. If you would like more information please contact us at munsailbot at gmail.com.

(They took 4th place in the 2011 race.) Eagle files here. [via DangPro]
