We have used Peters & May for many years now, for our logistics transporting our boat, sails and spares parts around for our participation at different regattas worldwide. Always providing good and professional service and most importantly finding solutions to the problems we found, with very restricted time as is always the matter when you are moving a racing team all around.

Every year, competing on the Olympic Sailing World Cup Circuit we send more than 50 containers to venues all around the globe. In every location, however remote or unfamiliar, Peters & May get our boats & equipment to the right place at the right time. Pretty impressive really.

Hard working

I worked closely with P&M for the Extreme Sailing Series 2010 and 2011. 2011 had been a challenging year, with really short time between each event, but P&M always delivered the containers on time for us.

P&M have a great delivery team and always work hard to make it happen.

Highly reliable

Artemis Racing have been using Peters & May exclusively for 2010 and 2011 for the movement of our Extreme40 catamaran on the Extreme Sailing Series global circuit. Despite the complicated diverse venues in such areas as the Middle East, China, Turkey, the USA, the UK and back to Mediterranean Europe, we have had a completely stress-free year in regards to having access to our race-boat in time for our training before every event.

Very impressive

We want to thank you for your professionalism, courtesy, expertise and friendly assistance with transporting our 28’ gaff cutter from Falmouth to Canada. This was out first experience with shipping something this awkward and your calm approach was always reassuring and helped to settle our ‘first time nerves'.

Highly recommended
