Delivery Details for Containers
The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club believes that it is in everyone’s interests that containers go to Middle Island, but there is a significant cost in getting them there.
The RHKYC will pick up this cost but will look to the competitors to pay the normal container terminal handling charges (including the River Trade Terminal charges) and an additional HK$6,000 per container, which will effectively be a contribution to the barging costs.
The net position is therefore that competitors will be able to have their containers with them at Middle Island for the whole event for only a small additional cost over and above the cost of transporting the containers to Kellett Island.
Containers need to be delivered to Fat Kee’s (the barging company) storage area:
Berth 9 & 10
Stonecutters Island Public Cargo Working Area
Ngong Wan Road
Ngong Shuen Chau
Tel : 2499 1140 (Cheung Kee)
Containers will be barged to Middle Island on the morning of the 22 October 2013. There will be only the one barging date. In order to make sure that no container misses this one barge trip we would recommend that containers arrive into the Hong Kong port in plenty of time – we would recommend an estimated arrival date of about a week before the barging date.
The barging date for the return journey from Middle Island is the morning of the 12th November. We would recommend that you allow for an extra day or so after this date (to allow for any weather related delays etc) so would recommend that you do not book a shipping date before the 15 November 2013.
The consignee should be Gulf Agency Company (Hong Kong) Ltd and Connie Chan (firstname.lastname@example.org, +852 2239 0304) should be given as the notify party.
