From July 3-12, 2018, in Gosport, England, everything came together. The SSI sponsored team of student engineers showed off their design and participated in the race.

This is the last post of the series about SSI’s cooperation with the UVic Submarine Racing Club. Previous post: “Student Submarine Designers Train with MyLearning


Despite only forming 10 months ago, the UVic team put on a stellar show at the European International Submarine Race (eISR) competition with their pedal-powered submarine Chinook while competing against Universities around the world that have been doing this for a decade.

Here’s the UVic submarine in action:


While ultimately Chinook and its solo pilot may not have had the fastest time, the design did win the trophy for being the most reliable, a testament to the UVic club’s engineering and craftsmanship.

Prowess at Presentation

What SSI is most proud of however, is that the UVic submariners won the prize for putting on the best design presentation. SSI helped make this possible.

UVic Submarine Racing Club President Manuel Dussault Gomez expressed his gratitude during the middle of the event:

The presentation to the judges was a complete success!! we do not know if we actually won the presentation trophy until the last day of the competition [Note: they did win], but based on our overall position in the standings, we know that we did extremely well. As you may notice in the attached photos, we had the complete ShipConstructor assembly model open in Navisworks with a tablet, and the drawings open in ShipConstructor with a computer. NO other team had a digital twin model like ours, thus giving us the edge over everyone!! Thank you so much for your support and thank you Tal for all the hard work.    

As Manual mentioned, the UVic team was the only one to produce a realistic digital twin of their submarine. It was modelled in the AutoCAD based ShipConstructor and exported for view in Autodesk Navisworks. They even had an A360 file for navigation. All in all, it was a slick presentation.

SSI congratulates the University of Victoria Submarine Club on such a successful event!
