Introducing the UCD MAE Solar Regatta Team

Two of our mechanical engineering students laying up the "poor man's fiberglass" on one of their catamaran hulls.

A team of our mechanical engineering students are going to be racing their custom designed boat in the Northern California Solar Regatta on May 14th at the Rancho Seco Recreational Area. They will be racing against other universities and colleges from Northern California. This is the first year a team from the University of California, Davis will be competing. There will also be camping, fishing, hiking, swimming, and picnicking activities along with the competition and the location is just south of Sacramento making for a nice day trip. Come out and support them!
