    Renting is not impossible – don’t get discouraged!  But, it will definitely go smoother if the sailing competition staff handle the communications/rental as the rental company will feel more comfortable dealing with a local organization over a visiting foreigner.  I was told once by a company that they have serious concerns over insurance if something breaks and how they could be compensated… which is fair, but adds a barrier.  Having the local organizer rent it would help them feel more assured they could be compensated if something happens.

    Oh, you will also need to bring your own sling sheets as they do not rent those.

    As for moving furniture, from my experiences, most items are not attached to the wall and hotels do not mind moving around items in the room or removing smaller items completely.

    Keep us in the loop and let us know how we can help.
