Mark, You said we were going from Liverpool!Steven and I have a huge distance to cover to Southampton,can I ask for more feedback on what is happening, please?
PS My name was one of the first up, all looking doubtfull now!
I would like to say well done to Mark for sorting out the shipping for the UK contingent to get out to Canada. In what is probably a relatively thankless and stressful task.
I can speak from experience and say that it is not easy in the past all I have had to worry about is the boat and associated kit (container, cradle, rib etc) getting from A to C via B and managing owner/sponsor expectations.
I would say that the task of getting 8 or so Albacores sorted out, logistics planned, paid for and then packed is tough. Especially as you are dealing with alot more people with different ideas and expectations. Peters and May offer a service second to none in the shipping market, especially when dealing with boats and their owners whatever the size.
I fear I maybe waffling now, I just wanted to say well done to Mark and any others involved, and I wish I was coming with all you guys as I think it will be a blast. The hardest bit will be getting the gear into the container all you have to do then is turn up, un pack, rig up and go sailing Preferably quicker than any of our friends on that side of the pond!
