Container shipping from Europe to the 2018 Worlds in Sarasota (Florida)

Registrations for Sarasota are steadily increasing, with now already 44 teams having confirmed their participation in October. For European teams who want to have their own boat in Florida we have some good news!

The class is looking for realistic options to organize round-trip shipping from The Hague/Rotterdam (The Netherlands) to Sarasota.  

Loading of the container will take place at the end of August in order to have sufficient margin for timely arrival in Sarasota before the event will take place from 12-19 October. Round-trip shipping costs are to be confirmed, but are estimated to be between €500 – €600 per boat. Teams that are interested in shipping their own F18 catamaran to Sarasota can contact Ad Noordzij by email

If you haven’t decided yet to join us in the turquoise in Sarasota, have a look at our F18 Presidents review of the event venue. After that, don’t forget to sign up on the official F18 Worlds 2018 website. Wondered who already signed up? Check the official numbers here.

We also looked for cheaper options to get your boat in Sarasota….. and found one. Just follow the containerships going west from Europe. At the F18 Raid Worlds 2017 many teams already had some time to practise with these boats 🙂
