The 2022 edition of the eISR ran over nine days in July 2022. The first four days were focused on the second round of qualification, which involved the teams demonstrating the functioning of their safety systems. The race proper ran over the last five days, with submarines taking on the challenge of a slalom course that got more difficult each day. The trade-off of speed and control played out throughout the competition. Awards for engineering design and science communication complemented the teams’ in-water performance.
