As a result, the team from Samara and from Ryazan overtaken boat, Made in Holland on a professional shipyard, the cost of which is more 100 000 Euro. Our guys were able to pick up such technology, which allowed them to overtake the professional team ", — комментирует Евгений Казанов.

The invention team from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University also participated in the "Solar regatta". Лодка была отмечена призом за лучший технический дизайн по решению Экспертного совета журналистов .

During the presentation, journalists will be able to ride on a unique boat, communicate with representatives of the St. Petersburg team and learn about the use of alternative energy sources in St. Petersburg.
