Dear All,

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!

Look forward to seeing you all on the water soon.

Hugh. :)

All:

Mark has posted nine names thus far as committed.

Remember that if you switch to a 45 foot high cube container it will hold twelve boats, which is sure to lower the shipping price per boat by a significant margin.

It's not too late!
