Eurobot 2020 Cancellation
We regret to inform you, that the Eurobot 2020 competition can no longer be held. We tried our best to host a Eurobot meeting and finals alongside the French cup. This cancellation is the consequence of the travel ban still in effect from most of the world. Another main reason is the fact that most national contests could not take place and it would therefore have been impossible to bring equal participating chances to all the teams.
The French cup will still be held from October 29th to 31st in La Roche-sur-Yon on a reduced scale. We wish to keep it as open as possible regarding the participation of European teams. It will therefore be open for participation for foreign teams subject to availability.
Also, and due to the low number of meetings that may take place in 2020, we are announcing today that the Sail the World rules will be maintained in 2021! You'll have the opportunity to compete twice, for twice the fun, on the best regulation of the decade.

New date for Eurobot 2020
The robots will Sail the World.
In the context of the COVID-19 epidemic, the maintenance of Eurobot on the dates planned for May 2020 is no longer possible even if the traffic restrictions were being lifted. A postponement date has been found in order to accommodate the competition as best as possible. It is July 9, 10 and 11, 2020 (teams will be welcomed on Wednesday 8). The venue remains unchanged: Parc des Expositions les Oudairies in La-Roche-sur-Yon.
All information concerning the schedule and accommodation is being updated on the site. We are doing our utmost to ensure that this event can take place in the best possible conditions for both teams and partners, and in compliance with government measures. Many unknowns are still present. We will not fail to inform you as we can respond to them.
Please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail if you need any further information.
