Corsica

We are planning to take a couple of OCR boats to Corsica for a basic race at the Class 3 worlds 21st - 26th September.
Does anyone have or know of a 6 car transporter that could be hired or borrowed to take the boats down ?? We have a volunteer HGV driver that will drive it for expenses.

Flights are available for 14 return !!

Anyone got any good deals on Ferries ??

Thanks

Bob

Stanstead to Figari with Ryanair 14 + 10 CC charge I assume you would need an electron card to pay without charges !!
