Welcome to the World Robotic Sailing Championship and International Robotic Sailing Conference (WRSC/IRSC). The WRSC is a competition open to fully autonomous and unmanned sailing boats up to 4m in length. Due to the COVID19 pandemic there will be no in person event in 2020, we are still considering the possibility of an online event. Previous events have been held in Austria (2008), Portugal (2009 and 2016), Canada (2010), Germany (2011), Wales/UK (2012), France (2013), Ireland (2014), Finland (2015), Norway (2017), England/UK (2018) and China (2019).

The accompanying International Robotic Sailing Conference (IRSC) provides an ideal venue to discuss the broad range of scientific problems involved in the desgin and development of autonomous sailboats.
