    CAUV Reaches the Semi Finals

    For the last two days the focus at SAUC-E has been on the qualifying runs to progress to the semi finals. While one team sadly failed to make it through, and others left it very late, CAUV successfully passed through the validation gate on the first of our three sessions to qualify for the semi finals. Unfortunately, following that, some minor technical problems meant that we were unable to demonstrate our pipe following ability in front of the judges, which was frustrating based on how sucessfully we had had it operating during testing earlier in the week.

    Today the semi finals get under way, with CAUV running between 2 and 3pm. We have fixed the minor technical issues we had over the past two days so hopefully we should be able to perform the pipe following, as well as attempting to circle the buoy during our semi final run.


    All the team hope to make it to the final tomorrow, keep following the twitter to see if our efforts will be rewarded.
