See you in 2018!
On July 9, 2016 the last day of the Dutch Solar Challenge started really sunny, but ended with rain... and lots of rain. The teams had it rough. During the last stage race from Grou to Leeuwarden, the participants had to endure bad weather sailing the last stretch from Sneek to Leeuwarden. Because of the weather, many teams could not finish in time, or had to quit halfway the stage because the battery had run out.
Nevertheless, the day ended with a special award ceremony after which the teams, the organization and the sponsors said goodbye. We're looking back at a great challenge, which had it, all... new records and surprises. We would like to thank you all for your positive contribution to the Solar Challenge. Stay in touch... we're already saying: See you in 2018!
