2016 National Sea Perch Challenge

Congratulations to the two Sea Dragons teams that competed in the 2016 National SeaPerch Challenge over in the US! ‘VACUUM’, one of our teams came 5th place! Our other team, ‘AUSV Searcher’, tied for 7th place with another team. Well done to the members and coordinators for each team! Here are the official scores from SeaPerch.org:

Both teams did very well considering that this was our first year competing!

Each team had to complete an obstacle course (Click here to watch the entire obstacle course event). This obstacle course consists of underwater rings that the Sea Perch has to maneuver through.
