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 :-).
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.
