    Team Oracle USA's cargo was unloaded today in Dockyard


The defending America’s Cup champions today started arriving in Bermuda, with cargo for Team Oracle being unloaded in Dockyard.

Multiple custom containers, each more than twice the size of a normal 20ft container, as well as high-speed support boats and equipment, were delivered by the MV Oleander, according to a statement released by Neptune Group Management.

“Following the discharge of this week’s refrigerated and dry containers and roll-on/roll-off cargo in Hamilton, BCL’s vessel, the MV Oleander, initiated the delivery of Oracle Team USA’s base camp from San Francisco to Dockyard,” the statement said. “The containers were lifted and the trailers were driven off the Oleander in Dockyard.

“When BCL was asked whether shipping to Bermuda from around the world was possible, BCL communicated that Bermuda could compete with any global destination and that BCL would do its part to help Bermuda with its bid.

“BCL offered attractive service and price features to the America’s Cup organisers and syndicates enabling seamless, cost-effective shipping to Bermuda from around the world.”

The Oleander has been providing weekly service from Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, since 1979 and this week marks its 1,800th voyage to the Island.
