The date of the Desafio Solar Brasil has changed. The race will now take place from 16th-24th October. We apologize for the inconvenience, this change was made due to a request from the Science and Technology Ministry.

The teams who have asked for a catamaran can come and pick their boat up from the Polo Nautico, from the 12-26th August.

For those who’re having difficulties finding parts and equipment, we have found a retailer based in Rio who imports and sells most boat parts from most fabricants:

The solar panels provided by Kyocera are available and can be picked up from the Polo Nautico. Please get in touch to arrange a date/time to pick them up.
