The races are over and the tallies are in! Javelin is a proud sponsor of the University of Victoria Submarine Racing Club and we are thrilled to announce the results of their most recent race.
The UVic Submarine Racing Club blew their competition out of the water, coming in 4th overall in this years European International Submarine Races! They also won three very prestigious trophies along the way. The competition was incredible tight, as they were just 1.4 points away from 3rd place and 1.7 points away from 2nd place, out of a total of 100 points.
The UVSRC has only been working on this for 10 months, and they came out way ahead of teams that have been competing for almost 10 years. Confidence levels are incredibly high for the team, and they’re looking to be the top contender for 1st place in next year’s competition.
“This is a huge success not only for our club, but for the marine industry in the Victoria, BC region as a whole.”
We could not be more proud of our team at UVic, and it’s been an absolute pleasure following their progress, from initial designs to a fully-functioning racing submarine. Congratulations to the UVSRC, we can’t wait to cheer you on next year!
