Wow this is great news! Clearly a great deal has happened off-line and without my being aware of it.

Just a note of caution though. I've done this trip 3 or 4 times previously and we can only get 8 boats in a 45 ft high top container.

Ok I need to ask Rob to check out the high cube, but that means the first container is full without:

Any other boats from Scotland
Anyone of the other potential 'rock star' crews in the sidelines
Any boat that finished in the top 10 at Lyme Regis

Strong possibles or considering

Jean & Derek Simmons
Trevor & Anne Smith
Phil Tindall & Crew
Mike Banner & Anne
Mike McNamara & Crew
Matt Thompson & Crew
Judy & Paul Armstrong
John Woffinden & Crew

My intention is to go, but I cant comit to a container space until I know if I have a crew who wants to sail regularly and do the events.
If I will be sailing with a scratch crew, I dont think it is worth shipping my boat over.
Put me on the list as a maybe for now.

Norm,

You can fit twelve Albacores, (collapsible) trolleys and gear in a 45 ft high cube container.

You can fit eight Albacores in a 40 foot high cube container.

You can fit six Albacores in a 40 foot regular container.
