The Mission

The main objective for Beoga Beag is to cross the Atlantic, from Ireland to Antigua, without any outside assistance. This is the definition of the Microtransat. Autonomously. The boat must be programmed for every eventuality and be able to navigate by itself from start to finish. It must report its position several times a day, and cannot accept inbound communications.

You can find the rules on the Microtransit web site, here.

However, before we can attempt that particular mission, we have a variety of smaller challenges (which I’ve mentioned here for example).

I will add the details of those challenges to this page, once I’ve had a chance to update the mission requirements.
