In June of 2023, UMEB will compete in a 5-mile race with our electric boat in Portsmouth, Virginia. This competition gives us an opportunity to work with design software, a variety of tools, and collaborate to create an innovative final product. UMEB and our competitors are tasked with completing 5 laps in a short out and back circuit and will be given the opportunity to compete in an acceleration challenge. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers and teams displaying innovative engineering.
