Hello All, I'm hoping you could give me some advice on a logistical challenge I am facing trying to freight some goods. The goods need to travel from the manufacturing point in Quezon City to Hingutanan, stopping off for assemblage in Danao. The cargo is large, but floatable, and we are looking to hire a boat and crew to tow it from either Subic Bay, to Danao, to Hingutanan; or freight it in 2 x 40ft containers from Subic Bay to Cebu, transport to Danao and then hire the boat and crew to tow it to Hingutanan. I would love some advice on: 1. Where I could hire a boat and crew to tow the material for the journey the whole distance from Subic Bay, to Danao, to Hingutanan. OR 2. Which sea freight company who would be the most reliable and cost effective to transport the 40ft containers from Subic Bay to Cebu (or Danao if possible - otherwise we must freight overland, back to Danao, for assembly), and 3. Where to hire the boat and crew to tow the floating material from Danao to Hingutanan. We are on a tight budget, and hoping to spend a maximum of $3000USD to achieve this goal. The time frame looks to be maximum 14 days from start to finish. Any assistance, advice or warnings would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Natasha

http://www.seamagazine.com/Newsletter/Article/PlanetSolar-beat-own-record-speed By: PlanetSolar During the trip around the world (2010-2012), the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar sailed for 26 days from one side of the Atlantic to the other, thereby claiming the world record speed for a solar-powered transatlantic crossing and her first entry in the Guinness World Records™. It hasn’t been broken since. It was not until 2013 that the largest solar boat in the world repeated the trip to realize a new global accomplishment: 22 days, 12 hours, and 32 minutes. Having left from Las Palmas (Spain) on April 25, 2013, the ship sailed 2867 miles (5310 km) across the Atlantic Ocean at the average speed of 5.3 knots before reaching Marigot (St. Martin, French West Indies) on May 18. This new record is currently undergoing an authorization process at Guinness World Records™. During the transatlantic crossing, the crew encountered phases of substantial cloudiness for several consecutive days, and regularly had to optimize their route. The MS Tûranor PlanetSolar’s captain, Gérard d’Aboville, explains that “it was necessary to make a significant deviation to the south, which increased the travelling distance by 7%, but enabled us to avoid winds and unfavorable swells.” Furthermore, the ship’s energy consumption had to be carefully managed in order to maintain an efficient speed and reach St. Martin in less than 26 days. It is with great pride that the crew set foot on dry land after 22 days at sea: “Once again, the boat provided a brilliant demonstration of solar energy’s potential by breaking its own speed record for a transatlantic crossing set in 2010, improving it by 4 days, 6 hours, and 38 minutes. It is difficult to compare the two crossings because they were conducted at very different times of the year. But it is certain that in light of the lessons learned during the trip around the world, the major maintenance projects carried out last winter—particularly to the propulsion system—have greatly improved the ship’s performance. She will now travel to Miami to begin her second life as part of an exploratory mission along the Gulf Stream current conducted by the University of Geneva,” said Gérard d’Aboville. The arrival of the largest solar boat in the world was also cause for celebration in St. Martin. In preparation for her arrival, PlanetSolar was able to count on support from the Fort Louis Marina as well as from the St. Martin Tourism Office. Upon her arrival, PlanetSolar received a welcome as warm as her destination.
