The European International Submarine Races are well underway and the UVic Submarine Racing Club is already making big waves. They were the 2nd out of 12 teams to arrive on site and were the 1st team to successfully complete underwater wet testing of all systems and safety inspections. Their hard work is already starting to pay off!
