The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (The LRET) joined the sponsors of the inaugural International European Submarine Races (eISR), being held the week of 25 June 2012 in QinetiQ’s Ocean Basin at Gosport, England. The races will see teams of University engineering students race their human-powered submarines in Europe’s largest freshwater tank in a unique sporting and engineering challenge. All the students will have designed and built their own submarines and will race them flooded, piloted and pedalled by a scuba diver. As well as the overall award to the fastest, most manoeuvrable submarine, there will be other awards made including fastest sprint speed, best manufacture, and most innovative design.
