Just saw it in the new Yachting Monthly magazine. Amazing stuff!
Its a Trans-Atlantic race for robotic model yachts.

I bet your club likes the idea of 4 m boats and no penalty for "bumping" the buoys. The 10 km course looks well within the scope of current battery technology.

You bet Martin!!! I would like to have input into how they sail though. A fully automated yacht is just boring.
