Shipping options for 2023 Gold Cup in Miami

Containers will leave from Europe in the second half of November and return in February.

Our friends from the Miami Finn fleet have offered to store our Finns in a Miami facility provided by their sponsor once the containers arrive from Europe. Therefore, boats can be collected one by one as sailors arrive for training and lead up regattas prior to the Gold Cup.

 

We have quotes for shipping to Miami return, but at this stage they are only indicative. Pricing is only valid for 2 to 4 weeks and we are planning to ship in November or early December. At present costs are around €2200  per boat for the return trip, in a full container.

 

Note containers are in high demand at present and prices are exceptionally expensive. By November it may be a bit cheaper…

 

All boats leaving will need to be listed on an ATA Carnet document. The cost of this process is included in the overall pricing quoted above.

 

Options for shipping or supplied boats are:

DC Composites Netherlands – for new TT2 boats supplied for the event, possibly charters and also for private boats to complete any incomplete containers.
