Delivery or road transport

I intend to do the Capetown to Rio race in Jan 2014. From there I want to get her to the Caribbean. I am looking for suggestions. I could do a road transport, a sailing delivery( how safe is that area of the world) ( She is 52 ft x 16 ft. 12000kg loaded. ) a third alternative is sea freight.
Looking for suggestions and information. Regards Rob

Hi Rob,

I would recommend a delivery by sea. The route from Rio to the Caribbean is fairly straightforward and is safe.

Good luck with the race!
