Shipping & Containers

You can bring your boat to race 2022 Moth Worlds in several ways. In this sheet, we comment on some of them and contemplate times and costs.

The most important thing is that if you are already thinking of coming, do not delay this issue because times are long, and we must work on all the documentation so that your boat arrives at 2022 Moth Worlds. 

 

Championship Logistics Program:

  • The logistics program includes two 40-foot containers round trip to Buenos Aires. 
  • The departure date will be around the first days of September. 
  • The locations are Malcesine and Weymouth

 

By plane Cargo:

In this case, you want to bring your box by cargo. Please get in touch with us, and we will help you. moth@yca.org.ar

 

By plane as luggage:

Airlines such as American Airlines, Iberia, Lufthansa, KLM, and AirSwiss allow you to carry your packed moth in two parts as sports equipment at a relatively low cost (200 each way). We have traveled in this way to several Moth Worlds. The only condition is that your moth should be a soft wing boat. This means you will arrive at the Ezeiza airport with your moth. For more details, contact our contact email: moth@yca.org.ar

For your boats to arrive on time, we need to send documents to Argentine customs, so we ask you to submit your registration and the following form before August 19 (https://forms.gle/vJpJd64SEuDbsvgC9). 

 

 

Due to temporary import regulations in Argentina, it is essential to clarify that once we receive your form, the boat must be in the container on the loading date. 

 

If you do not confirm before August 19, you can only come by Airfreight.
