A week ago, we floated Protei 5.1 in Rotterdam by the famous bridge !!!
Protei 5.1 is mostly transparent body, so we can things move inside.
Protei 5.1 is the baby of Piem Wirtz, Etienne Gernez, Henrik Rudstrom and Cesar Harada, all built for about $150 at the V2_ in Rotterdam, NL.
Protei 5.1 wasn't a truly functionnal prototype, but enabled us to :
It was great fun, we learnt a lot again but overall Protei 5.1 will be very useful for the whole Protei team coming this summer in Rotterdam to build the full-scale Prototype.
If you want to stay updated with the progress of Protei, we recommend you to join the Open_Sailing Facebook group:)
Just as a reminder : there is only 5 days left to back Protei on Kickstarter. Thanks!
