6. Each trailer will have a red tag with a number. Compare this tag to the list to determine the location it came from. Take a photo of the tag number. Cut the tag and open the doors.
7. Take photos of the contents. Take photos of the boats. Boats must be inspected for damage that may have incurred during shipping. Boats must also be inspected to insure that they are in good working condition. If not, the boat owner must be informed immediately of repairs to be made before racing begins. The interior contents SHOULD be labelled and color coordinated. If not, the next team will have to do it for them.
8. Remove the bins, toolboxes and assistive device cases from the container. Keep them together. They cannot get mixed up. They will be transported to the club in the back of the corresponding tow vehicle.

10. The tilt and load trailer will then remove the boats from the containers. STAND CLEAR when they are unloading.
11. Ensure the container is completely empty, then close the doors. The driver will then back it into place on the grass, disconnect and then leave. 
ALWAYS stay CLEAR when the trucks are moving.
12. Put the boat and trailer on the tow vehicles with 2" hitches. With vehicles with four-ways on, drive slowly south on Stadium Road to NYC drysail. Repeat until all 6 containers are done.
