For Solaris we organized an online press conference on the subject of algae skis in February 2021, involving their customers Checkerspot and WNDR.
The aim was to talk about the bioreactors used to obtain the oils at the base of the resins for skis from the microalgae. Of course, however, the media have also extensively written about skiing.
On Thursday 7 July 2021, two Californian managers from WNDR climbed together with the CEO of Solaris Biotech and two of her colleagues on the company’s Asso 99 in Desenzano del Garda. Raffaello Porro thus found, this time as skipper, the Americans he had worked with to organize the press conference.
The exit took place with 15 knots of wind, the use of only the jib for a top speed of 7 knots and a 90 ‘exit suitable for an inexperienced crew looking for a team experience at the end of a busy schedule of technical meetings and tests.
