Please be advised, we are projecting shipment costs of $2000, round trip. Once we have all deposits we can confirm shipping details. We are currently anticipating all but one of the containers being packed in Riverton, NJ the weekend following the 2017 North American Championship on September 30th/Oct 1st (revised date as of 2/27). The other container (maybe 2) will likely ship from Houston, TX around that same time.

Regarding confirmation and deposits we have established the following schedule:

$500 due January 31st - First deposit and attendance confirmation from initial invites. 
$500 due March 15th 
$1,000 due by August 1st. 

These deposits are refundable only in the event that your slot is filled should you withdraw at a later date.

While there may be as many as 8 boats available for charter, priority for those will go to European and South American competitors and developmental slots.

To confirm your slot, please send a $500 deposit check payable to the ILCA to the Class Office:

1528 Big Bass Drive
Tarpon Springs, FL 34689

Failure to reply by January 31st or the date stated in your invitation will result in a forfeit of your slot. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Rob Ruhlman, VP Worlds or Laura in the Class Office.
