Transport and Travel
 
Event sponsor Sailboat Deliveries (our very own Ian Jubb) has come up with a great subsidised transport option which should keep costs down, based on 15-20 boats in one enormous load - boats can be left at his yard at Emsworth immediately after the 30th Anniversary Regatta at HISC, or at other dates around that time.
 
Transport cost to include boat, sails, foils etc (i.e. the complete boat), but not your personal kit bag is £550/boat.  50% deposit to be paid on booking, balance 2 months prior to departure.
 
That then gives you the option to fill a car and drive (with cheaper ferry as no trailer), or book a budget airline flight and then travel by train/ferry to the venue, or ask your mate to collect you from the airport!  Detailed travel tips to follow, but if you can't wait, ask the 800 fleet!
 
Other sailors have suggested that the best ferry discounts are via the camping and caravan club, discounts vary and you need to join to see them, we can share more insight later, but one sailor quotes "we got a motorhome for the price of a small car".
 
Accommodation
 
There is plenty of accommodation of all types within walking distance.
 
The club have some suggestions on their website here
 
There are several campsite, Ian Jubb recommends Camping Brione for campervans, but perhaps one of the closer ones for tents.
 
 
Action!
We will be creating an event WhatsApp group for sailors to share and discuss plans re accommodation, transport etc, we'll only be know to include you if you have your name on the Intend to Race list, so p-lease do add your name, as well as entering via the Riva Cup website.
