Dalhousie Engineering has entered the Microtransat Challenge for the second time. This event tasks teams of engineers with designing and launching an autonomous sailboat, no longer than 2.4 metres in length, that is capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

The SeaLeon, named after former Dean and original Dal Microtransat team lead Dr. Joshua Leon, is Dalhousie's entrant in the 2018 challenge. She launched on July 31, and has already travelled over 300km.

You can follow along with the SeaLeon's voyage via the Microtransat Challenge's live tracking site, which updates every 12 hours.
