Sailbot 2017 – First floating!

While Enemy Glory isn’t in the water yet, we had a beautiful day in Rhode Island!  We took the opportunity to do out first test launch of a robotic sailboat that we’ll be entering into the 2017 International Robotic Sailing Regatta (see http://sailbot.org/).

This year we’ve been building a 2 meter-class boat and today we tested the hull to make sure that it was sitting more-or-less as expected.  There’s a lot more to do, but these first tests were pretty encouraging!

I’ll be positing a lot more video of our progress as we get the electronics integrated and begin testing in some bigger water.
