Ever Wondered How BIFFA Packs Our Teams For The Worlds…??!!

I’ve never actually seen the container packing happening, have you?  John Hanson (Datchet Water SC), kindly sent these few photos in of the whole process.

It’s a big commitment for everyone involved too – a return container ticket for one boat is around £1,500.

Here’s how the Association stacks four in a container…..

1/ Put the Keels to bed for two boats

Keels to bed

2/ Step two – get the top bunks loaded

Up in the Roof

3/ Get the first bottom “bunk”in place (nose to nose)

First one underneath

4/ Get all four aboard

Four In

5/ Seal up and ready to go

sealed and ready

To load 4 boats to travel takes about two hours, John says.

Good luck in Hong Kong!!!
