Frank Nooijen is working hard to get things going for the containers to Santa Cruz. But the container industry has lost a lot of money last year so they wait as long as possible to give us a final price. By now it is clear that the cost per boat would be at least € 1.200,-. So save yourself a lot of money for shipping your boat by entering the Worlds in Santa Cruz today (7 days from today).

As part of our 60th anniversary IFDCO decided to grant roundtrip shipment of FD’s for € 750 (6 containers per boot; container cost base € 7.500/cont) for those who enter the worlds before the 1st of June. Register by  visiting . We love to celebrate our 60th anniversary with all of you sailing an FD in Santa Cruz.
