On the 14th of September we presented Paperboat 3 during the ‘Groene Grachten’ and the Solar Boat Race, an event about sustainability and technology initiated by Wubbo Ockels. Our little paper boat was presented at ‘Het Plein van de Toekomst’ or ‘Future Plaza’ in English. And of course we’ve tried it out in the canals of Amsterdam amidst the impressive solar boats.
This year our Paperboat project is going to be a part of the I’M BINCK festival coming October. The festival features the ‘Binckhorst’, a remarkable industrial area in The Hague. Circular economy is one of the main topics of the festival, so we’re going to use paper waste like cardboard boxes and newspapers from the Binckhorst for the build of our new boat.
Our new boat will be launched in the beginning of October and will operate as a ferry during the festival.
So join us for a boat trip in October!
Our Paperboat traveled to Giethoorn to be a part of Sail Giethoorn this year. The little boat looked really tiny but hopeful amongst all those magnificent old sailboats.
The event took place from June 12 to 14, 2014.
And our thanks to ADIGRA.nl for the great photographs!
On the 8th of June we launched the ‘Paperboat Race’ together with Duurzaam Den Haag at the North Sea Regatta in Scheveningen. Caspar Bouman kindly agreed to be our test pilot, because it was the first time our little Paperboat was launched in salt water.
But it withstood the sea remarkably well!
