Why Robotic Sailboats?

  1. Because they’re awesome.
  2. We can.
  3. Why not?!

Tufts Robotic Sail Team (TRST) is a group of dedicated Tufts students who want to make something epic. We strive to do what nobody has done before: get a sailboat across the Atlantic Ocean autonomously. It’s called the Microtransat Challenge and although the competition started in 2006, no boat has completed the transatlantic journey. We aim to change that.

Check out our blog to see what we’re up to, and contact us if you’re interested in helping us out.
