Emirates SkyCargo transports team New Zealand's boat to Bermuda

Posted 13 April 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo has transported 'New Zealand Aotearoa' – Emirates Team New Zealand's race boat - from Auckland to Bermuda in advance of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup sailing competition which will begin in late May 2017.

Emirates SkyCargo transported Emirates Team New Zealand’s race boat and all associated support equipment including the team’s chase boat.  In order to facilitate the loading and air transportation process, the high-tech sailing boat had to be disassembled into smaller parts – two hulls, two wings, beams, rudders and other equipment. During the packaging process, metal frames were used to reinforce the packing to ensure that there would be no damage to the individual components during the transportation process.

The packaged components were then trucked from their base to the airport, security screened and then loaded on the aircraft. It took over four hours for the team to complete the loading process.
