The object of Dronautic is to organize competitions and events where it is possible to evaluate and compare different projects from different teams all around the world. In that way is defined the rule box for the Dronautic Teams, the Dronautic’6.
In September 2014 will be presented the DRONAUTIC’6 rule-box. This rule will define a 6 meters long and 6 meters wide (maximum) Dronautic.
The first non-stop and unmanned round the world yacht race will be launched in 2018. Different 6 meters long nautical drones, the Dronautic’6, designed and managed by students, engineers or experimented sailors will compete together to be back to the starting port after rounding the Antarctic. Will you be between them?
In 1968, three men had the idea to set sail around the world, alone. By learning their project, the Sunday Times launched the Golden Globe, a trophy for the first one to come back in England, and a price money of 5000£ for the best performance, non-stop, around the world. From 1968 June 1st to October 31st, nine sailors took the start of the first ever-sailing race around the world. Only one came back. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston did is in more than 312 days at the helm of Suhaili.
