Hello from sunny San Diego! The team and our robot Tortuga (thanks Pelican - the shipping container worked great!) made it to the 2014 RoboSub competition and had a pretty good first couple days. We were able to qualify on our first attempt by navigating autonomously through the gate.

And we're off! Tortuga is safely on its way to competition.

Big thanks to Pelican Hardigg for donating the brand new custom crate.

San Diego here we come!
