Edition 2015


Summary 2015

From 14th to 19th of July 2015, the second edition of the Hydrocontest has gathered more than 150 future engineers coming from 16 universities in 7 different countries.

After one year of research, conception and construction, the participants has met in Lausanne with their prototypes to compete against the best engineering students in the world.

With a last minute qualification in the lightweight category, Polytechnique Paris worked all week long to optimise their foiling catamaran. They succeeded in beating the team of HEIA – Fribourg in final, who has realised the best time for the qualifications.

“Students has to use their brains to conceive the best boat possible, but also their hands to build it! ”

However, the Fribourg students won the long distance race with their lightweight boat, covering the longer distance in 2 hours of race.

In the mass transport category, the Swiss team of the EPFL won with its semi-submersible craft, which was transporting the 200kg ballast under the water to avoid the creation of waves.
