The Shipping Container

Submitted by mark lowry on Fri, 09/27/2019 - 08:08

Howdy --

I know its early, but does anyone know the plans for the shipping container?  We are planning on spending the winter in Hawaii on Chance after the race; so, we are hoping to load cruising gear into the container.  What is the policy for what can and can not be shipped?  Specifically, we are having a new hard dinghy built and would like to make sure that we can ship it over in the container.  It will be ~ 10' long, but very light-- a carbon-fiber-epoxy technological miracle :-).

Hi Mark

It is looking like we WILL have a container.  Your dinghy sounds really cool.  We will need to check with prior practice, but I am hopeful that this will not be a problem.

Michael -- Glad to hear that there will be a container.  Please let me know about the rules. We would be packing up a lot of other stuff inside of the dinghy so our overall footprint wouldn't be that big.

Is there container space available to ship gear in advance? We have sails and a dodger for the trip back. 

If not, would appreciate any recommendations. 

Thank you
