Our non-Swiss readers may not know that the HYDROS team up in Lake Geneva isn’t just a bunch of sailboat racers – it’s a big partnership between commercial players in the energy market, a major bank, one of the Europe’s top universities, and a pile of really bright sailors and engineers thinking up ways to push the boundaries of energy efficiency within a spirit of environmental responsibility.  As the closet tree-huggers most sailors are, we love what Jeremie and the team are doing – and not just with foiling sailboats.

render_hq_006-2Enter the bit of news we got today about the HYDROcontest, where in just 10 days, 14 student teams from 7 nations will come to Lausanne with the 20 or so  electric-powered boats they’ve been working on for the better part of a year.  The goal?  The fastest boat, using the least amount of energy; the winner may have the potential to revolutionize powerboats and shipping.  Check out the first episode of the HYROcontest series on Youtube here, and subscribe to their channel for frequent features showing off the new concepts they’ve found.  Note: The pic to the left is NOT one of their concepts – just a cool pic we found!
