Wild Zebra, just one of the three boats entered by St. Paul’s City Academy, competes in the concluding 1-hour endurance race in the 21st annual Solar Boat Regatta held at Phalen Lake May 18.

Boats make use of the sun’s radiation by onboard storage and conversion. Below left, Panda, another of City Academy’s solar boats navigates around the buoyed course. The unique experience combines solar electricity, wiring, motors, fluid dynamics, boat design and construction, and teamwork.
