So I'll bet I'm not the only one reading the list of mini's for sale after the Transat and wondering about the feasibility of shipping a boat from Guadeloupe to a US port. Miami is a mere 1200+ nm, not to mention the ultimate destination of the left coast, so logistics aren't trivial, given normal trade routes, transfers, etc. Anyone have any perspective on this?

Sailing from Guadeloupe to Florida is a charme and a good way to learn your new boat

That would be a shame not to sail her on her own bottom! I'll do it. 

 

Just dealing with the agents and such in a French island, especially one in the land of 'Not my job. Mon!' wouldn't be fun either. You'd be better sailing it to St Thomas and send it on Tropical to West Palm Beach. But like I said, I'll take it anywhere you want it. What is the ultimate destination or homeport?
