The Royal Geelong Yacht Club is situated in the heart of Geelong and central along the waterfront. The Club will temporarily extend its footprint to create a boat park for the 49er/FX/Nacra 17 World Championships. We will therefore not be able to accommodate Trailers or Containers on site. A separate Trailer/Container compound will be setup at Limeburners Point Boat Ramp on the waterfront approx. 2km from the Yacht Club which will also be the main RIB launching area. Those wishing to store containers at Limeburners Point will need to contact Cargo Live to book and arrange details (there is only space available for approximately 25 containers on site). Cargo Live is the Official Event Logistics partner and will be managing container storage bookings for the event.
CargoLive Global Events are the logistics experts when it comes to major sporting events. Having been in business for more than 40 years, they have helped hundreds of competitors with all the logistics that goes with competing around the world. From the 2016 Rio Olympic Games to the 2019 Miami world championships, CargoLive have taken care of shipping for both competitors and regatta organisers. They are the main sponsors of the Australian Olympic team and also a supporter of Sailing Australia and other sporting events.
CargoLive will have a dedicated team to assist sailors competing in this year’s World Championships in Geelong and can assist with international shipping, customs clearance, border security and trucking. CargoLive will have staff on the ground at the event to supervise unpacking and packing and will also handle general queries about shipping to make life easy for visiting sailors and teams. If you wish to ship your boats for the next regatta or return home, they can help with it all.
