Earlier this week, these young sailors in the Netherlands set off on a solar boat race as part of the Young Solar Challenge.

Using their solar “sails”, the boats draw power from the sun.

Called the Eleven Cities Tour, the 220km race runs over five days and must be completely solar powered.

To take part in the race, teams of high school students also need to build their own boats.

The event aims to boost interest in the technical sciences.
